Do you wake up in the middle of the night to make sure your Common Application is still filled out? Have you started calling Mom and Dad, Parent 1 and Parent 2? Do you have a fear of words printed in red (which indicate a wrong or missing answer)? These are all symptoms of CAAD or College Application Anxiety Disorder.
Although there is no known treatment or cure from this condition which affects teens aged 17-18, symptoms dissappear after hitting the college application "SEND" button. College deadlines for early application are approaching. Some college early application deadlines are as early as October 15. Many are in November. Are you ready?
