Brain Sucking Zombie Attack Begins this Month!

Students dreading the start of college application season that began August 1st have said it is like facing a giant brain-sucking zombie. They run screaming from the forced brain dumps into electronic applications asking very personal questions as well as questions they do not know how to answer. And just when they think they have answered all application questions, there are endless supplements sucking the limited information still remaining in their brains.

The creators of The Walking Dead described the best way to kill a zombie in an interview that appeared December 3, 2010 in an article in Popular Mechanics Magazine written by Joe Pappalardo. The solution, they say, is to reduce the zombie by destroying it's head. 

While college applications are not actually zombies, it is necessary to have a plan of attack to get them completed. My attack plan is to reduce the applications by working on them before they open. Two actions students can take to get a head start include pre-writing essays and student activity resumes and creating user accounts as soon as possible. While some applications are open, there are many that open later this month and in September. Destroy the head of the college application zombie by getting to work now!
