Everything hits you at once when your a senior, finals,
graduation, adulthood, and college. With all the stuff you’ve got going this
year, it is easy to confuse or forget all those dates and deadlines. That is why you need to get and stay organized. Here’s how:
- Buy a personal organizer or daily calendar. Mark the days
in which you have something due such as financial aid application in a different
color from your regular schedule. That way you'll be sure to notice when you
have something coming due.
- Use this organizer faithfully to keep track of the deadlines and requirements of each college to
which you’re applying.
- Take advantage of free e-mail reminder services available
on the web such as Forget Me Notes
or eOrganizer. These services will send
you e-mails to remind you of approaching deadlines.
