Hey there! It's completely normal to feel stressed during the college application process, but don't worry - there are plenty of ways to manage it and stay organized. First, create a clear timeline and break down the tasks into smaller, manageable pieces. This will help you see exactly what needs to be done and when, reducing the feeling of being overwhelmed. Second, prioritize self-care and time management. Make sure you're getting enough sleep, eating well, and taking breaks when needed. Setting aside specific time for college applications and balancing it with schoolwork and extracurricular activities can help you stay focused and avoid procrastination. Lastly, don't be afraid to ask for help. Reach out to your counselor, teachers, or even friends and family for support, advice, or just someone to talk to. Remember, you're not alone in this process, and it's okay to lean on others for help. Good luck, and try to stay positive!
