Hi there! It's completely understandable to feel stressed about balancing school work and college applications. Here's what worked for my child and might help you too. First, start working on your college applications during the summer before your senior year. This way, you'll have a head start and can focus on your school work when the academic year starts. Second, create a schedule or calendar to keep track of important dates and deadlines. Allocate specific times during the week to work on your applications and stick to the schedule consistently. Third, break down the application process into smaller tasks like writing your personal statement, asking for recommendations, and filling in the application forms. This way, you won't feel overwhelmed by the entire process. Lastly, don't hesitate to ask for help from your school counselor, teachers, or even friends who have gone through the process. They can offer valuable advice and support. Good luck, and remember, staying organized and consistent will be the key to managing your time effectively!
