What can I expect during senior year?

Hello everyone! As a rising senior, I'm feeling a little anxious about what to expect during my senior year. Can anyone who has been through it give me an overview of the college application process, senior year workload, and how to manage stress during this time? Thanks in advance!

Hello! It's completely normal to feel anxious about your senior year. You can expect the college application process to involve several steps including selecting schools you're interested in, completing the Common App or other application platforms, writing essays, and gathering letters of recommendation. You'll need to stay on top of deadlines for applications and financial aid such as the FAFSA.

As for the workload, it will likely be a mix of challenging coursework and extracurricular commitments. Balancing these with college applications can be tough, but remember to prioritize and stay organized with a planner or digital calendar.

To manage stress, it's important to not overextend yourself. Take breaks when you need to and keep communication open with your teachers and counselors; we're here to help guide you through this process. Also, try to stay connected with friends and family who can offer support. Remember, it's a significant year but also a rewarding one. Best of luck!
