Not all colleges have the same deadlines. So, it is very important that you stay on top of things.
So, what should you do? Get a calendar AND use it. What should you put in there? General admission dates. Honors program dates. University scholarship dates. Community scholarship dates. FAFSA deadlines. Mark up that calendar! Color code it if you must.
Also, don’t wait until the last minute to fill out the applications. Apps take time and you don’t want to do a rush job because you could miss something. Guess what happens to incomplete applications: they get tossed. So take your time and give each application your undivided attention. Log off all of your sites. Turn off the TV. Take out the headphones.
Get your applications done.
Stay ahead of the game.
