Miss Marple Posted September 11, 2012 Share Posted September 11, 2012 My son has been talking about doing a year long study at the same school in England where his brother, in his senior year, spent two months. So instead of doing it like we did with his brother, he is thinking about spending the first year after his high school graduation there. This brings some logistical questions to mind: 1. Do we continue to follow the course of college applications and ACT/SAT testing as we would if he were going to college immediately after high school? 2. If we continue the usual college application track, do we ask for a deferred entry and inform them of his plans for the intervening year? 3. If we do not continue as usual, would he take the ACT/SAT when he returns in order to provide a more current test? The credits he will earn at this school will not transfer as credit to the state schools where he will likely apply. And this is fine with us. The experience is what we would like to obtain. I now many of you have done this - I have never had any who were serious about taking a year to do something different. This son will greatly benefit from the experience, IMO. His brother said that if he could do it over again, he would have preferred to do the year rather than just the spring semester. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
