As incoming college freshmen are packing up their childhood rooms and heading off to the great adventure that is their first year of college, high school seniors are embarking on an adventure of their own: college applications.
My own little sister is starting this process herself, and since I didn’t have anyone around to tell me how to go about the application process, I thought I’d make a general timeline of what you should do to apply for college throughout the fall.
Applying for college can be overwhelming, that’s why it’s better to spread everything out and DO NOT PROCRASTINATE. You don’t want to be writing an essay at 11:51 p.m. when your application is due at midnight. If you manage your time well, you can get all your applications done while still having an unforgettable senior year.
