banged out two essays last night and handed in 5 college apps. Deadline was midnight Dec 1. I submitted my last app at 11:59 PM. Trying to stop procrastinating with that…on the other hand, I’m pumped to go to college. Can’t wait til high school is over. 2 years ago

need to get on this! applied to 3 schools, but I have a couple of essays to write! And today’s the deadline. :o
I’m going in. 2 years ago
How I did it: I started out with a separate folder for each school I was applying to. In each labelled folder is a basic information sheet with:
- Name of school
- CEEB/FAFSA Codes
- Price of application fee
- Checklist of paperwork to file / turn in / complete (When checked off, write the date sent by you as well as date processed by school, if they let you know)
- Address, e-mail, and phone # of the school
- Notification date
Following that sheet is any mail I've received from the school, and application confirmations from websites.
I applied online, which made deadlines easier to handle because I didn't have to worry about not having enough envelopes or about delays in the post. I made a separate list of deadlines for easy reference which I kept in my daily agenda. "Jan 15: ____ application due, ___ scholarship application due" and so on.
As for essays, your English teacher is a great resource, although I wouldn't bother teachers who aren't teaching you this year, because they probably have their own stack of essays to edit. Mychances.net also offters a relatively safe way to have your essay edited online, but use it at your own discretion. Collegeboard.com has tips. You should also show it to your friends, who can tell you whether your essay reflects you honestly. Read how I did it… 3 years ago
I need to get around to asking my financial aid questions and turning in my honors application. Now that I’ve submitted the main applications, though, I don’t really want to lug out all my fat college information folders.
I’d better get on it, though, otherwise I’ll forget about the deadlines! 3 years ago
Finished one more, and looking to write the last few essays tomorrow, edit the day after, and submit. 3 years ago
I’ve been accepted to two and four are still in limbo. I also have some honors applications to fill out. It’s the essay-writing that gets me… but I’ll get at least one more done before the end of break! 3 years ago
done with THREE almost done with a FOURTH then I have to complete two more by tomorrow. The other two aren’t due until Feb. 1st. But maybe I can get them done anyways?
Yawn. I’ve been working hard. It’s hard to be doing this right in the midst of finals… 4 years ago
8 to go….
But I’ve written a lot of rough drafts! So I’m not all that bad off! 4 years ago
Today I handed out all my recommendations so that’s a sigh of relief. Over break (yay, Thanksgiving!) I plan on finishing the essay and generally my part of the application and also submit the housing application. I’m strangely excited! 4 years ago
I only have to apply to some more honors colleges and then to University of Virginia (my reach school, it’s soooo expensive for out of state!). Then I’m done! That involves three teacher recommendation forms and two more essays. The good thing is that this all HAS to be done by the end of January when the deadlines are. Then I get to start the decision of where I want to go! Mmmmm, growing up. 4 years ago
I have put this thing off for so long. I’m sure I’ll be owing someone an apology. But they’re finally completed and in the mail. A gigantic load of stress is off my shoulders. I’ll be having my phone interview in the near future and then we’ll see where I’ll be in the fall. Wish me luck!

All I have to do is get my records check back from the Po, and I can send it in tomorrow! I know, I’m the most horrible person in the whole world for waiting so long. I might not get accepted, but at least I tried. 6 years ago
