Is a gap year a good fit for your child?

BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) For many students it's a matter of months, even weeks, before some of them start getting college acceptance letters. But for other high schoolers going right to college may not be the best fit.

Channel 3's Melissa Sheketoff spoke with Julia Rodgers, who runs a gap year consulting business, to explain what a gap year is, and why it could benefit your child.
