I am sure that this portion is already the "hot topic" of the Common App, but I am unsure about what I should write.
"Include any additional information that you would like to provide regarding special circumstances, additional qualifications, etc.
Under the guise of "special circumstances", I was considering writing about bing forced to leave High School for medical reasons, hence the lack of consistency in HS grades, no class rank and receiving a degree from an adult school. This would also encompass the reasons why I was not a member of any clubs and EC's in HS.
Would this be appropriate? I am aware that most individuals hold the opinion that this section should be used as location for a resume. However, shall I explain my medical history in order to explain my lack of an "orthodox" HS record??
