    Hello, I'm an international applicant
    When I submitted my application, I (and my parents) though that having NO gap year might be beneficial for several reasons.
    But after four months of submitting application, I (also my parents) now think that having gap year is actually a better choice.
    Is it possible to change my application status from No gap year to gap year by contacting universities that I have got an offer??
    But the thing is that one of the universities that I applied have not responded to my application, which means I am still waiting.

    Should I contact them now or should I contact them after the last university makes a decision????

    Thank you for answering my question

    In my country it is very rare that a student takes a year our before going to a college (for cultural reasons and male students like me will eventually be away from schools for two years because of military service :'( ). And I thought that finishing my undergrad as soon as possible was the best choice before I traveled to the UK for an interview. The trip to the UK made me realize that having good experiences is as valuable as finishing my education early, or more valuable.

    I don't see any reason to wait for your fifth choice to respond before asking them all.
