The end of the first quarter is a very stressful time for seniors. Students are finishing up their college applications and others are waiting to hear back about their decisions.

Seniors are balancing school work and extracurricular activities on top of worrying about college and scholarship applications. They’re also finishing up taking the SAT and asking teachers for recommendation letters. Seniors also have to worry about making sure their transcripts get sent to the school before deadlines.

The college application process is long and has many different parts.

Chelsea Hennison, a senior, has applied to many colleges and is waiting for their decisions. So far she has been accepted to West Chester and East Stroudsburg.

“Even though I’ve been accepted to a couple schools so far, I’m still really stressed. I keep feeling like I’m forgetting things that I have to send to the universities, which scares me,” Hennison said.

After getting accepted to college, students also have to worry about making the right decision on what school their committing to. If they make the wrong decision, they have to worry about the transfer process, which can be very difficult.

In some cases, credits do not transfer over and then they will lose their money. Students also take the risk of not being able to take classes that they were taking at their previous school, or their class year could be full.

Applying to colleges can be stressful, but after it’s over, the benefits are well worth it.
