I've received and offer from King's to study medicine in Sept 2016 but am wondering if people (especially medical students) would recommend perhaps deferring and taking a gap year? I love the idea of getting a job, saving up some money and going travelling at the end of the year but is this a good idea? I guess I just want a bit of a break before the horrors start of medical school (ahh) and would also like to see the world and gain some more experience, but at the same time I guess I could just go travelling in the summers without actually taking a whole year out right?
I really don't know what to do
If I do defer I'm also afraid on missing out on all the experiences that my friends will be having in uni and freshers week and being older than everyone else next year... What do I do!
Would you pay less for a humanities degree?
