The Complete Guide to the Gap Year
The Best Things to do Between High School and College


Kristin M. White
Published in September 2009 by Jossey-Bass


This is the go-to book for anyone considering a year to re-charge, to follow a passion, to become immersed in another culture, or to find their love of learning again. It includes everything a student, parent, or guidance counselor would want to know about the gap year; including what a gap year is, what it is not, and why it can have a positive impact on a young life.

In It’s the Student, Not the College, educational consultant Kristin White explains that it doesn’t need to be so hard. She cuts through the nonsense surrounding “elite” institutions, then provides students and their harried parents with a path to academic excellence and career success that leapfrogs over needless stress and expense.

White’s essential message: Students can make any school into a dream school if they become dream students by developing a personal “Success Profile” of qualities such as perseverance, curiosity, improved critical problem solving and communication skills, leadership, teamwork, and strong study habits. So parents can take a deep breath and skip that second mortgage, and students can grow, excel, and even live a little, wherever they enroll, knowing the future is in their hands – not Harvard’s.
