Does senior year go by fast?

Hi, I'm a junior and I've heard that senior year goes by very fast. Is this true? I'm trying to mentally prepare myself for the college application process and senior year in general. Any thoughts or experiences would be greatly appreciated!

Hi there! It's true that for many students, senior year tends to fly by. This can be due to the excitement of preparing for college and engaging in final high school experiences. In particular, the college application process, with its deadlines and time-consuming tasks, can make the year feel like it's going even faster.

In terms of managing your applications, one way to stay on track is to create a schedule for yourself. Mark important deadlines and allocate time for each part of the college application process, such as researching schools, writing essays, and preparing for any required tests. This will help ensure you don't miss any deadlines and allow you to make the process a bit more manageable. Staying organized and completing your applications efficiently will also ensure you're able to have fun and make the most of your senior year. You don't get this time back, so make sure you let yourself relax and make memories you'll look back on many years from now too.

Best of luck as you enter this exciting stage of your life!
