How do I balance applying to college with my senior year coursework?

Hi everyone! I'm a bit stressed about managing my college applications while keeping up with my senior year classes. How did you all balance your time between applications and schoolwork? Any tips or strategies would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Hey there! I understand that balancing college applications and senior year coursework can be quite a challenge. My child went through the same process, and here's what we found helpful in managing time and stress. First, create a calendar or timeline for all your college application deadlines and tasks. Break down each task (essays, recommendations, etc.) into smaller, manageable steps. This way, you can easily track your progress and avoid last-minute surprises. Next, set aside specific time slots for college applications and schoolwork. For instance, you can work on applications for an hour or two after school, and then focus on homework. Remember to prioritize your tasks and be realistic with the time you allocate for each. Breaks are essential too! Make sure to take short breaks during study sessions and find time for hobbies or activities that help you relax and destress. Finally, don't hesitate to ask for help from teachers, counselors, or your parents if you're feeling overwhelmed. Good luck and remember to stay organized and focused throughout the process!
