How do I balance schoolwork with college applications?

Hey there! It's completely normal to feel overwhelmed during this time. I remember when my child was going through the same experience. The key is to develop a well-structured plan to help you stay organized and manage your time effectively. First, make a list of tasks for each area (schoolwork, extracurriculars, college applications). Then, prioritize these tasks based on deadlines and importance. Create a daily or weekly schedule, allocating time for each task, and make sure to include breaks to avoid burnout. Don't forget to communicate with your teachers, counselors, and family members about your workload and ask for help when needed. Stay focused on your goals, but remember to maintain a balance between work and relaxation. Good luck, and I'm sure you'll do great!
