Hi there! It's great that you're getting a head start on your college applications. I understand that it can be overwhelming to keep track of all the deadlines and requirements, but don't worry, there are ways to help organize everything. Here are a few steps you can take to make sure you stay on top of things:

1. Create a list of colleges you're interested in applying to and gather information about their application deadlines. Take note of the different deadlines for Early Action, Early Decision, Regular Decision, and any other specific programs you might be considering.

2. Make a calendar or a spreadsheet that includes all the relevant deadlines for each college. This will help you visualize the timeline and prioritize your tasks.

3. Keep track of any additional requirements, such as test score submission deadlines, letters of recommendation, and financial aid applications. You can create separate columns in your spreadsheet for these items.

4. Set reminders or alarms for important dates to ensure you don't miss any deadlines. You can use your phone, an online calendar, or even a physical planner.

5. Break down your tasks into smaller, manageable steps and work on them consistently. This will help make the process less overwhelming and more manageable.

Best of luck with your applications, and don't hesitate to ask for help if you need it!
