How do I stay organized during the college application process?

Hi guys! I'm a junior and I'm already feeling a bit overwhelmed by the college application process. How do you stay organized throughout the process? Do you have any tips or tricks for keeping track of deadlines, requirements, etc.? Thanks!

Hi there! It's totally normal to feel overwhelmed during the college application process, but staying organized can make a big difference. One way to keep track of deadlines and requirements is by creating a spreadsheet or using a planner. You can list all the colleges you're interested in applying to, along with their application deadlines and requirements (such as essays, letters of recommendation, and test scores). Make sure to prioritize tasks and break them down into smaller, manageable steps. It's also a good idea to set reminders on your phone or calendar for important dates. Another tip is to create a separate email folder for college-related correspondence, so you can easily find and reference important information. Don't forget to ask for help from your school counselor or teachers if you're feeling overwhelmed – they can provide valuable guidance and support. Best of luck with your applications!
