Why a Student Needs To Take Charge in Their Application
Being a teen, it is understandable to still depend on your parents concerning the small and big decisions that you will have to make. May it be from choosing which dress to wear, picking the right health insurance, and more. But as you age, you must learn to be more independent. From your college search, college admissions, to college itself.

After all, it is you who will attend the school, and not them. It must be you who has the final say in where you will go or what you will take. Parents should also know their limitations. They must know that it is okay to guide but not make the final decision. They must acknowledge what you want and make a way how to make it possible.

Here are some reasons why you should take charge of your college application:

Scheduling and time management

At this point, you are more likely packed up with piles of high school homework, extracurricular activities, test preparations, and others. And this will not stop until college. The number of things on your to-do list is going to test your ability to manage time.

When you take charge of the things in your application, you will be taking control of them. This means things will go accordingly to how you organized them. Being able to do your application by yourself will help you hone these skills.

Problem-solving and more

You probably know this but it is worth repeating that the application process can boost your skill sets. From asking for letters of recommendation, writing essays, gathering materials, researching schools and programs, networking, to looking for scholarship opportunities.

You will grow and develop more as a student. The important part is, you will have a first look at how college life is—tiring yet rewarding. 

Trusting yourself

Doing the application process by yourself can also make you feel more confident with yourself. As you fill out, ask for recommendation letters, inquire, consult, and network, you get a sense of trust in yourself. This will boost and will greatly help you in pursuing college alone. Confidence is important.

Being able to show off and speak for yourself without any doubt is a key aspect of reaching your goals. You will also learn when and why you should trust your instinct.

The college application may seem simple but for others, it is an arduous task that needs a lot of time and effort. And this is true. It may be simple but this task is a crucial part of getting accepted into your chosen school.
