Hello! It's great that you're already thinking about managing your time and balancing college applications with your senior year course load. My child went through this process not too long ago, so I can share some tips that worked for them. First, start by creating a schedule or calendar with all the important deadlines for your college applications. This will help you stay organized and ensure you don't miss any important due dates. Next, break down each task into smaller manageable tasks. For example, you can start working on your personal statement by outlining the main points you want to cover, then gradually fill out the details. Remember to allocate time for studying and homework as well. One of the most effective strategies is to set aside specific times for college applications and school work. For instance, you could work on college applications during the weekends and focus on school work during weekdays. Lastly, don't be afraid to ask for help, whether it's from teachers, counselors, or even your peers. Good luck with your senior year and college applications!
