How to balance school work and extracurriculars during college application season?

Hey everyone, I'm a junior and I'm getting a little bit stressed about balancing school work, extracurriculars, and applying to colleges next year. How did you manage your time during application season? Any tips on how to stay organized and not get too overwhelmed? Thanks!

Hello! I understand that the college application process can be quite stressful, especially when you're trying to juggle school work and extracurriculars. My child faced a similar situation last year. One thing that helped them manage their time was creating a schedule with specific deadlines for each task. This helped them break down larger tasks into smaller, more manageable pieces, and they could see the progress they were making. Another suggestion is to prioritize your activities. Focus on the ones that are most important to you and your college applications, and consider cutting back on some of the less essential activities if you're feeling overwhelmed. Additionally, don't hesitate to ask for help from your teachers, counselors, or even friends and family. They can provide valuable support and advice during this busy time. Remember to take breaks and practice self-care, too. It's essential to maintain a balance between work and relaxation to avoid burnout. Good luck!
