    If I don't make my firm choice, then I've decided to take a gap year. I'll reapply, look up about a few schemes I read about such as teaching English in Japan/etc, get a job and do a few more courses at college I quite fancy trying my luck at a science and doing an italian/french/spanish for beginners course!
    Yup, I may do that if I don't get a Cam offer. With everything after the second comma replaced with "then eat, sleep and watch TV for a year."

    evenin kate,

    hey that sounds like a great idea, you get to earn money and travel! why do you wanna go to japan?

    i'm surprise not many people wants to go to america??
    I do, but I wouldn't go on my gap year unless there was a scheme there I read that one of the "teach english" scheme things was based in Japan, I'd love to go there as it seems totally different and beautiful.. and I could stock up on my Hello Kitty stuff I don't know too much about the place, obviously I'd have to read up on it if I don't make my offer!

    Don't think that'd impress them enough to give you an offer second time round

    oh wicked, tell us the address when you're done! it would be cool to see.

    yeah, but being away in such a different place for so long and seeing different things does make your life more satifsying though...its like that feeling you get when you come back froma long holiday. except this would be a whole part of your life!

    why not spend a whole year teaching in Japan. It's not that hard to arrange.

    Same here I worked through the majority of mine, trying to save enough money to actually afford to go to a London uni, and I haven't done to badly. Gave it all up about a month and a half ago, so I'm just relaxing now, and going on holiday soon for two weeks with my boyfriend. I'd advise anybody to do a gap year!
