so yeah like im confused
Each college (or college system, for example the University of California system) has its own deadlines, and the schools that have the common application use those deadlines. I'd recommend looking at the admissions website of each college you want to apply to and finding those dates. These dates are for last admissions cycle (I think), so specific dates for upcoming seniors should be coming out this summer. In general, apply before Christmas is my thought
You should start applying to colleges in the 1st semester of your senior year; I would list the months you should start by, but everyone's 1st semester starts at different times. I hope this helps you. Also, is there someone in your school or life you can talk to about this because they might be able to offer you some advice?
