Q1: What should a student do to be organized when filling out college applications? #campuschat
Make “colllege” a subject in your planner. Record due dates, essay writing, entrance exams. Will keep you on track! #campuschat
Set achievable goals. Easier to write one paragraph at a sitting then the whole essay! #campuschat
Make one folder for each college and staple a checklist due dates to each one. #campuschat
