Hey there! It's completely normal to feel overwhelmed during the college application process. My child went through the same thing not too long ago. One thing that worked for them was creating a schedule. They set aside specific times for schoolwork, extracurriculars, and college applications. This way, they could focus on each aspect without feeling like they were neglecting the others. Additionally, try to break down the college application tasks into smaller, more manageable goals. This can make the whole process feel less daunting. Don't forget to also take breaks and give yourself some time to relax and recharge. Remember that it's important to maintain a balance between your academic and personal life. Reach out to your teachers, counselors, or friends for support when needed. You've got this, and good luck with your applications!
