What about college?
I was happily surprised to learn that Harvard is actually very supportive of gap years! The Dean of Admissions, William Fitzsimmons, recently wrote an article on his belief in the importance of taking time off (see link under "Gap Year References" on the right). But I just sent in a letter detailing my request for deferral a few weeks ago, so we'll see what they say!
