Hey there! It's completely normal to feel overwhelmed during the college application process. My child went through the same thing, and we found that having a solid plan and staying organized can make a huge difference. First, create a calendar or schedule to prioritize your tasks, including school work, extracurriculars, and college applications. Break down your college applications into smaller tasks, such as writing essays, gathering recommendation letters, and completing forms. Set deadlines for each task to keep yourself on track. It's also important to communicate with your teachers and coaches about your commitments and ask for their support. Don't be afraid to ask for help from your friends, family or even an academic advisor to help you navigate this busy time. Finally, remember to take breaks and practice self-care to avoid burnout. It's a challenging time, but you can do this! Good luck!
