Article in The Daily Princetonian about taking a gap year.

Interesting. Wonder why they didn't mention gapyear.com? Funny, the GAP YEAR is the standard in so many European countries, yet that article sounds like it is a brand new deal...
Here, an offical "GAP year" is a year spent as a tutor in an English boarding school. A glorified camp job, if you ask me. It's a century old tradition.
Are your S's taking a GAP Year Marite?

No. I just happened to read the Daily Princetonian.
In fact, the Princeton application has a prompt that asks applicants what they would do if they had a year in which to do it. My S thought he would want to do exactly the same things as if he were in college. he's having fun in his college classes right now.
