How to balance college applications with senior year?

Hello, fellow juniors! I'm already stressed about college applications, and I'm worried it'll be even worse during senior year. How can I balance my time between school, extracurriculars, and applying to college? Any tips would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Hi there! I completely understand how stressful the college application process can be, especially when combined with the demands of senior year. My child went through the same thing not too long ago. One thing that helped them was to create a schedule. They set aside specific times during the week to work on applications and essays, and stuck to it as much as possible. This way, they were able to avoid procrastination and manage their time more effectively. Additionally, try to start working on your applications during the summer before your senior year. This will give you a head-start and alleviate some of the pressure later on. Don't forget to also prioritize self-care, like getting enough sleep, eating well, and taking breaks when needed. Lastly, remember to communicate with your teachers, counselors, and family about your concerns. They can provide valuable support and advice throughout the process. Best of luck, and I hope you find these tips helpful!
