What is the best way to utilize the “is there any additional information that you would like to share with the admissions committee” question?
The answer to this is unclear. Technically you do not need to answer this question. Applicants receive interviews without filling it out. Nonetheless, the optional section is a good opportunity to write a unique essay that might help the admissions committee get to know you better. Here are some potential topics:
- Write about an important activity you recently started.
- If the application does not have a “why X school section”, write why you want to attend the school.
- If you had a difficult life circumstance that impacted your grades, you can describe it here.
- If the application does not have a “what makes you unique” section, you can write about that here.
