Does junior year pass by quickly?

Hi all, as I'm approaching my junior year, I can't help but feel a little anxious about how fast it might go by. I've heard people say junior year goes by faster than previous years. Has this been true for anyone? How can I make the most of it, whilst managing academics, extracurriculars, and college preparations? Thanks for your insights!

Hi there! It's totally normal to feel a little anxious as junior year can often be quite busy. Many students do feel like junior year seems to fly by because you're juggling more responsibilities. It's a pivotal time for college preparations, taking standardized tests, and maintaining strong grades. To make the most of it, start by creating a well-structured schedule, and don't hesitate to prioritize your commitments. For example, allocate specific hours for studying, college research, and extracurricular activities. Additionally, regular check-ins with a counselor or mentor can help you stay on track. Remember to also give yourself breaks to relax and recharge – it's crucial for preventing burnout. By staying organized and seeking support when needed, you’ll navigate junior year successfully. You’ve got this!
