It's not just your imagination -- applying for college is harder than ever! I didn't graduate that long ago... but it's already twice as hard to get into Stanford now than it was back then.
Which is why it doesn't surprise me when high school juniors and rising seniors often feel like they're "already behind" in April or May!
