What are some tips for staying organized during the college application process?

Hello everyone! I'm a junior in high school, and I've been hearing a lot about how stressful and time-consuming the college application process can be. I want to make sure I stay organized and on top of everything. Does anyone have any tips or strategies for staying organized? Thanks!

Hey there! The college application process can definitely be a bit overwhelming, but staying organized is key to making it less stressful. Here are a few tips to help you out: 1) Create a calendar or timeline with all important deadlines, such as application due dates, financial aid deadlines, and testing dates. 2) Make a list of all the colleges you're interested in applying to, and note any specific requirements for each school (essay topics, letters of recommendation, etc.). 3) Break the application process into smaller tasks and work on them consistently over time rather than trying to do everything at once. 4) Create separate folders (either physical or digital) for each college application, so you can easily find and store materials related to each school. 5) Communicate with your teachers, counselors, and anyone else involved in the process to make sure you're on track and have all the necessary documentation. Best of luck with your college applications!
