    For those of you who took a "gap year" what did you do? I'm guessing mostly tech work? What did you personally like and dislike about the gap? Yes, I know this has been asked many times, but every year a new cohort does it, so I'd like to know! Thanks!

    I took a gap year to catch up on my bible studies.

    taking a gap year was probably the best decision I've ever made. looking back, if I had tried to apply to pharmacy school during my senior year of undergrad, I would have had much less informed interview answers and essays, and I would've been way more stressed overall. taking the gap year allowed me to work in a pharmacy setting, give my apps the attention and detail they deserved, and really boosted my interview answers as the "how would you handle ___" questions turned into "how DO you handle ___". after all that, I was accepted into UCSF! 10/10 would gap again :)

    I didn't have a gap year. Didn't really see a point to it at the time.

    I had no choice, but I worked. Paid stuff off. Went to Vegas and Mexico. Got married. Not in that order.
