Additional Info?

Hi yall
On the common app where it says that you can include any info that you might wanna share with school about yourself.
So I basically put down that I had to switch schools multiple times, and there was also chronic illness in the family so there was bit of a rocky road, but I ended it off with telling them about the upward trajectory in grades I had, and then said I learned from my experiences and came out stronger, and did have some of this included in my college essay.
Is this a fine way of telling colleges more about my self.
Thanks folks

    Ideally this is information that your counselor should include in their recommendation letter. Otherwise it can come off looking like excuses from you. I would not include it in your section especially if some of it appears in your essay.
