Can you believe the size of some of these college applications? Page after page! Essay after essay! I just wish they would cut us some slack… Seriously, if I was able to write an entire novel in a few weeks for a college application I doubt I’d be applying in the first place.
These applications can get pretty intense, and if you have any intention of completing them, you’d better have a plan for what you need to get done and when you need to do it. Luckily for you, Zinch is willing and able to help you figure this all out.
1). Start Early & Plan ahead.
Time is NOT your friend. Suffice it to say that starting your college application the night before the deadline will get you in big trouble. Many college applications have so many requirements that you’re probably gonna need to start submitting materials weeks before the application is actually due. You’ll kick yourself if you wait any longer than two weeks before the deadline to start this process.
2). Get in the Right Mindset.
This is serious business. It’s one thing when you put off an English assignment to play a little Mario Kart, but if there’s one thing you should not mess around with in your academic career, it’s your college apps. Make sure you are ready to get some work done. This is your future you’re talking about.
