Hmmm.. where did you hear that captn?
Taking a year out is a great idea, that gives you the chance to experience life, maybe travel, maybe work, and will put things in a better
Actually the older you are when you enter college the better you perform. You are not swamped with all the pressures to conform to others - ie:
parties, booze, etc, and can concentrate on your work.
You also are more focused and are more aware of the privilige you have at being able to study instead of having to work at MacD's. As a result your
marks will be higer and you will have a clearer plan for what you want to do.
Take some time out, the worst thing that will happen to you is that you you might find ANOTHER thing you would like to do.
Try something different, go overseas, see the world, be an exchange student, do some charity work, don't spend all the time in a low paying job, the
experiences will help you later in life.
