    a serious dilemma, deciding whether to go

    In the 21st century high school graduates face a serious dilemma, deciding whether to go to university right after school or take a rest from academic institutions for some time.

    I don't think the bold part sounds natural, doesn't it? How can I improve it?
    Please, correct all my mistakes. I should know English perfectly and if you show me my mistakes I will achieve my dream a little bit faster. A lot of thanks.

    Maybe I should write: In the 21st century high school graduates face a serious dilemma whether to go to university right after school or take a rest from academic institutions for some time.

    Re: a serious dilemma, deciding whether to go

    That sounds better to me. The dilemma (and full marks for making it a two-way choice, by the way, and not just 'a tricky problem' ) is whether to A or B.
