Im uncertain as to when i should start filling out applications and doing all the paperwork.My hope was to have all it done by the end of november because i'm a procrastinator and i have a high chance of senioritis. With all the schools i'm applying to only one's admissions is already open for next year (kinda odd really this year hasn't even started).

    In all honesty, I would suggest working on the essays right now, and possibly asking the teachers for recs and meeting with your counselor. The other informational stuff on the app shouldnt take long, so that can wait until Sept for EA, November for RD. But like Tenors said, alot of ppl have already started and wont be rushing to complete it the night before.

    I suggest working on essays if the applications arent open yet (look for last year's application, they are most likely the same questions)
