Anyone take a 1/2 year off?

<p>Anyone take a half year off their freshman year as a result of AP transfer credits? Is this allowed in private colleges such as Boston University, Boston College, and Tufts?<br>
I'm getting AP credits in Calculus, Biology, Chemistry, Statistics, Micro and Macro Economics, Environmental Science, and Psychology. </p>


<p>I wouldn't recommend doing it, as you'll miss out on meeting a lot of people if you skip the first semester (unless you were planning to take the spring semester off)
Personally I would suggest taking a full year off or using those AP credits as a way to do a minor or a second major that you wouldn't have had time for otherwise.</p>

<p>I was thinking about taking a year off before college but then found out that my parents would no longer be reponsible for me (health insurance, etc.) and I def. can't afford to pay for that myself. If you are planning to not even be on might want to find out if this situation would apply to you.</p>

<p>Go in your first year, use your AP credits to take a semester off later when you've established friendships and need a break from school. It doesn't make sense to try to take your first semester off- colleges will just have you to start in the spring and graduate exactly four years later, not 3 1/2.</p>

<p>It's more common to see people take a semester off in their sophomore or junior years.</p>
