Gap Year(s) before dental school
Let's talk about gap years. When I was in college it felt like everyone would get all awkward when I told them I was taking some time after college to decide what I wanted to do next. And it made me feel so lost and lonely and like I was the only one who didn't have my you-know-what together.
But it shouldn't be that way...
I am a strong advocate for bridge years. I think they allow you time to mature as a person and to decide what you really want to do, not just what you thought you were destined to do because you chose to study a certain major. Heck, if I hadn't taken my gap years I'd probably be in medical school (and would probably love it, don't get me wrong). But I think that they are amazing things and I would LOVE to talk to anyone who wants advice about them!
Below are a few things that I would suggest doing during your gap years and some of the reasons I chose to take mine!
