Time is valuable. There's so many options after graduation. You're thinking about graduate school, but not quite sure if you're ready, or even prepared? You will learn the different opportunities you can explore for a Gap Year - the year between when you graduate with a bachelor's degree and enter into a graduate program. VCU Careers Services wants to help you maximize your experiences so that none of your time is wasted.
