Despite my younger sister being two years behind me in high school, we’ll be graduating from college at the same time. Have I spent an extra two years pursuing my Bachelor’s? Luckily, not quite.
Before enrolling at college, I took a year-long gap year off from school. My sister, on the other hand, immediately started college when she graduated from high school.
During our college careers, I transferred twice, and she took a semester off to travel. She was able to put her studies on hold for a semester without pushing her graduation date later.
I’m going to take four summer classes in Summer 2017; this will allow me to graduate a semester earlier than I would otherwise. My sister hasn’t taken any summer classes.
