Let’s be honest. A 4-year graduation track is designed with traditional college students in mind, but you have not been shut out of the race. It is still within the realm of reality to graduate in 4-years, but as a non-traditional student, there may be more obstacles in the way of doing so. These challenges will make the finish line that much sweeter.
Be warned. This does NOT mean you can get away doing nothing. Doing nothing is a waste of time and can do more damage than good in the long run. Use it as a time to develop yourself professionally and/or personally. Here’s how to make the most of your gap year.
