HELP PLEASE! Common App Short Answer

I have to do the short answer within these 2 hours.

I was wondering if it had to be as insightful and meticulously written as the essay, or are they really expecting a brief description?

Also, does the "additional info" have to flow logically? can i just describe what i do, then completely go to another topic and describe that?

    lol good luck. i spent about 4 hours crafting and revising the essay myself.

    then i had 2 english teachers look over it and revise it. one teacher from brown/nyu and the other from harvard.
    then i had my guidance counsellor, a former harvard/bu admissions officer, revise it.

    then i put in a final touch of myself and hoped to call it complete.
