Well, this is embarrassing. Something went wrong when posting your comment. Care to try again?

    Working for a UK based Gap Year organisation http://www.questoverseas.com we've noticed a real increase in US applications over the past couple of years.

    From a personal point of view my experience of a Gap Year was invaluable in my later life at university & beyond. Leaving school i didn't feel I had the necessary level of maturity to flourish in a university environment, and wanted to take some time to ensure that when i arrived there I would be able to make the most of the experience, both academically and socially. A year spent working full time, volunteering and travelling through Africa as part of a Quest Overseas programme, and travelling independently to visit family in Australia meant I started my course with a fresh outlook, motivated and having had the time to confirm that the course i was studying was the right decision for me.
