We have ALL been there. With the constant battle of time management, we prioritize. Whatever is not due.....we don't do. However, next time a deadline is approaching remember these two things.
1. Scholarships are competitions.
The scholarship judges want to give money to a student they feel will succeed in school. Who appears to be the better student: the one who turned in their scholarship a week before it was due or the student who submitted five minutes before the application closed?...Which one would you give your money to?
2. Once it's done, it's done.
Set up a schedule. Do a little bit every so often or block out a couple hours to get it all done at once. Either way, don't procrastinate. Get it finished and off your "To-Do" list.
