Because of all the uncertainty about the coronavirus, 1 in 6 high school graduates say they'll likely take a gap year instead.

That's according to a poll by the Art & Science group.

A gap year can often cost as much as a year of college.

However, because of the pandemic, many schools have pushed their deadline back to June 1.
