Working, even part time, while doing your gap year can help you to save money for when you do end up attending university, allowing you to require less financial aid, and maybe even require you to borrow less.  A part-time job is easily achievable, especially if you are willing to do odd-jobs like cleaning up beaches or selling umbrellas to tourists.
