Beat the Deadlines to Avoid Stress

Applying to college and filling out applications are stressful. This is not new news. Neither is this: a lot of the stress attached to the application process is due to procrastination. The good news about this old news is it means there’s an easy way to avoid a little (or a lot of) stress.

The application deadline is not a recommended submission date – so save yourself some anxiety and don’t treat it like one. Give yourself a cushion and kick stress to the curb. It’s easy to underestimate the time applying will actually take – and sometimes the easy things we take for granted end up causing us HUGE headaches. For example, many prospective students applying for early decision/action for Fall 2014 admissions with the common application know this all too well.

So… instead of meeting the deadline, try beating it.
