Smart Phone & Web Apps for Organizing

Get it done iphoneSo much to do, so little time – we all feel that way, right? And, if you're entrenched in college-search, then there's the added task of keeping track of additional important information (read: test dates, college visits, and application deadlines).  The good news is that there's a variety of smart phone and web apps to help you focus and keep track of everything. We compiled the list below from a recent #CampusChat on organizing high school students during the college admissions process:
