What do you guys think about gap year? Can it be really useful or is it just waste of time and money?
For example, I am from Russia. Taking gap year isn't a common practice here, most of the kids go to uni right after school. Most parents would say that they'd forget eveything they learned at school in one year, so it's better not to take any breaks.
But as the result, most of the students don't know what they want to do in life and take some "prestigeous" career. For example, I am studying management. I don't actually know what a manager does, but being a "manager" sounds good to me. In other words, I keep studying in order to live on my parents' money.
