College Application Stress

by Patrick Mahoney ’18

The beginning of senior year is always a stressful time. There are countless things to keep up with, nagging parents, everybody who asks where you are going to school, and all the deadlines that seem to be far away, but creep up in no time.

I wanted to apply to become a chemical engineer and although that might be a lofty goal, it is something that interests me. The College Counseling office, specifically Tova who was my college counselor, helped me figure out where I wanted to apply, shared a good schedule to follow for when what things should be done, and answered any questions I had about the college process.

Now most of my applications are turned in, but my college application anxiety has not faded. I will always be worrying about what schools I will get into and if I will be accepted into my top choice. Tova is always there to help me out, however, she helps me stay calm and manage my level of stress. Even though I know she has many students asking her questions and wanting her to look over things, she always has time to either meet with me or to revise any writing that I send her way.

George School is not only great for how they handle the application process, but that type of care pervades the entire school. It shows up in admissions, the course selection process, and your every school day as a whole. George School is a great place. You always know you have the support of the whole community for any problems that you might have.
