How do I keep track of all the different college application deadlines?

Hey guys! I'm starting to work on my college applications, and I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed by all the different deadlines. How do you guys keep track of everything and make sure you don't miss any important dates? Any organizational tips would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Hey there! I understand how overwhelming college application deadlines can be. When my child was applying, we found that creating a spreadsheet was really helpful in keeping track of important dates. You can use Excel, Google Sheets, or any other program you prefer. Start by listing all the colleges you're applying to, and then add columns for each type of deadline, such as early decision, early action, regular decision, and any scholarship deadlines. Fill in the dates as you research each college, and make sure to color-code or highlight the ones that are approaching soon. You can also set reminders on your phone or computer calendar to alert you a week or two before each deadline. Finally, don't forget to check your spreadsheet regularly to ensure you're staying on top of everything. Good luck with your applications!
