How can I best manage my time during the college application process?

Hey there! I can understand how the college application process can feel overwhelming, but don't worry – it's manageable! My child recently went through the process, and we learned some helpful tips along the way. First, make a timeline of important dates and deadlines for each college you're applying to. This will help you prioritize and plan ahead. Break down the tasks into smaller ones, such as brainstorming essay topics, drafting essays, and revising them. Dedicate specific days to work on each task, and try to stick to your schedule as much as possible. Don't forget to give yourself breaks too! It's important to maintain a balance between school work, extracurricular activities, and the application process. Lastly, reach out to your school counselor, teachers, and family for support and guidance. They can be a great resource during this time. Good luck, and remember that you can do this!
