Senior year is supposed to be one of the best times of our lives. It is supposed to be filled with joy and adventure, but it is also one of the most stressful times as well. We are closing the book on our childhood, and that alone is enough to cause a mild existential crisis, or at the very least, some anxiety.
Then you throw applying to college into the mix. Shouldn’t be that difficult, right? At first it doesn’t seem that hard. That is, until you start thinking about acceptance rates, essay questions, the FAFSA, the people you are competing against for admission, deadlines, and the list goes on. It is so easy to get overwhelmed by everything that needs to get done, that you can forget senior year is supposed to be fun. Save yourself some stress and follow these simple tips to get through your application sans meltdown.
