Mentioning two gap years in personal statementWatch
For my first gap year, I am studying abroad on a scholarship program, and I am dedicating an entire paragraph to this because it is very relevant to the course I'm applying to. For the second gap year, I intend to work abroad, but my plans are fairly vague considering this is over a year away (I intend to work either as an au pair or in a hostel/hotel in Brazil/Latin America or Turkey - quite vague plans). Thus, will it be sufficient to mention my second gap year in my personal statement by saying something like "I am taking a second gap year in order to work and earn money to use towards university costs"? Will universities wonder why I haven't given more detail about this second gap year, or wonder why I'm taking two gap years in the first place?
