Harvard Class of 2023 Who Took a Gap Year

( @skieurope I couldnt find a thread for entering Gap years.I did look. Delete if you know of one I didnt find.)

DD graduated HS in 2018 and has spent the last ten months on a "citizen ambassadorship" in Morocco. Anyone else out there whose kids are entering the class of 2023 after taking a gap year?

Any advice from parents or students who gap yeared before starting? For all intents and purposes, DD has not been in school mode for the year. Will she remember how when she arrives in Cambridge? Hoping she isn't set too far back.

    I'm a freshman with lots of friends who took a gap year. They had no problem readjusting and I didn't even know that they had taken a gap year until they or someone else told me, well after we became friends. Your daughter will love it and Harvard is a wonderful and accepting place.
