Is taking a gap year to work a good idea?

I was planning on taking a gap year, but my family is telling me not to. The thing is, I want to work in a Veterinary Clinic to see if I like it. Or should I do my General Ed at least.

Hi Jasmine. To be 100% honest, I believe you should take that gap year if you think that could help you better prepare for your college. I regret not having the opportunity to take such break before I started college. Most people are opposed to have a gap year because they do not want to get left behind. However, it is your life. No matter what field you are studying in college, taking some time off to do whatever that is meaningful to you is beneficial. Entering college is like entering the adulthood and everything will become more and more challenging as you are expected to be more independent and self-sufficient. So, I will recommend a gap year if you want one. :)

Could we consider doing both? There's a chance you could discover a program that provides internship or work study credit, letting you gain college credits as you learn in a practical environment. If you've already decided on a school, a counselor there could potentially guide you towards a biology or work study credit program. It could be a way to learn and earn at the same time!
