College Apps Cause Senior Burnout

With college essays and applications being due soon, we asked students: How do you manage school work along with their college apps?

“I would say it is very stressful balancing the two because there is a lot of school work… applications take a lot of time and you have to pay really good attention into what you are putting in to [it]…I don’t really have time to study  for any of my AP classes.” -Leo Perez, senior

“College apps are really stressful, and I’m also not good at school so I figured that I could get a grip on life at a j.c. and then deal with the stress as an adult.” -Siena Hoban, senior

“Yes it has been super stressful, it has just been in the back of my mind, like I know I need to do it, I just have not sat down and done it yet and that is stressful” -Genevieve Smith, senior

“It is really stressful if you put it off…I had to write my essays kinda late… it was a lot of work on top of what I already had to do for school” -Hank Portello, senior

Sup Dragons! I am a junior at SVHS and I joined Dragon's Tale because I think that people need to hear what's happening on campus and be informed. I play soccer for the school and club and love skating, fishing, and playing video games with my friends in my free time. I will try to keep you guys up to date this year. Stay safe Dragons.
