About the Author

Kristin M. White is the director of Darien Academic Advisors, as well as a member of both the Independent Educational Consultants Association (IECA) and the New Jersey Association for College Admission Counseling.


"Clearly lays out the vast diversity of transformative programs available to any student while also providing an essential compass, and makes a compelling case on how this legitimate educational supplement could soon become an educational imperative." Alex Safos, director, Global Learning Across Borders "With a thorough directory of organizations, an explanation of the financial picture, comments from top college admissions directors, and an objective perspective, Kristin M. White has created the number one gap year resource." Chris Stakich, co-founder and executive director, Thinking Beyond Borders "A good choice for students with the means and broad perspective necessary to consider this experience." ( Library Journal , February 2010) "Whatever your motivation, if you are interested in pursuing a gap year experience, do your research. And I'd start by reading White's book." (CBS, The College Solution ) "This guide's best feature is its clear and detailed organization by subject interest. If a marine life program is calling out to a teen, it is easy to find options and related subjects close by. Though the "gap year" is a relatively new concept in the United States, it is quite common in Europe and Australia. The directories of volunteer and for-credit gap year programs are pure gold. An index and resource list are included." ( School Library Journal , "Choosing the Right College" January 27, 2010)
