I have a revolutionary idea. What if you were to use the least stressful time of year—summer break—to accomplish what is arguably the most stressful task of high school: not only starting but actually completing your college application essays?
With most students today applying to a dozen colleges, and with each school requiring a few supplemental essays in addition to the Common App essay, you might write anywhere from ten to twenty essays in total. How liberating would it be to start your senior year with your essays finished, freeing you up to work hard in your academics, play hard in your extracurricular activities, and spend time with your friends in your final year together? That’s a revolution worth joining.
So think about how and when you will get your best work done. Then join me and become a Summer Warrior.
