Hey! It's totally normal to feel overwhelmed during the college application process, but don't worry, I've got some tips to help you stay organized. First, create a master calendar with important dates and deadlines related to your schoolwork, extracurriculars, and college applications. This will help you visualize what needs to be done and when. Second, break down larger tasks into smaller, manageable steps and set mini-deadlines for each step. This will make the process feel less daunting and keep you on track. Third, prioritize your tasks by focusing on what's most important and time-sensitive. This will help you use your time efficiently. Lastly, don't be afraid to ask for help! Reach out to your teachers, counselors, or peers if you need support or guidance. Remember, staying organized and managing your time well will make the application process smoother and less stressful. Good luck!
