Hello! It's great that you're thinking about time management early in the process. Here are a few tips that I found helpful when my child was going through the college application process:

1. Break tasks into smaller, manageable chunks and prioritize them. This will make it easier to focus on one thing at a time and prevent feeling overwhelmed.

2. Set specific deadlines for each task, and use a calendar or planner to keep track of them. This will help you stay organized and make sure everything gets done on time.

3. Allocate dedicated time for college applications and studying. Try to find a quiet space where you can work without distractions.

4. Make a schedule that includes time for schoolwork, extracurriculars, and college applications. Be realistic about how much time each task will take and try to stick to the schedule as much as possible.

5. Remember to take breaks and give yourself some downtime. It's important to maintain a healthy balance and avoid burnout.

I hope these tips help! Best of luck with your college application journey!
