    If you mean the "additional personal information", probably not. You might have missed a vital chance to strengthen your application, but this is one of the few cases in which an "optional question" is actually option.

    I did the additional personal information, but not the research, because none of my extracurriculars include researches. That wasn’t my direction.

    I didn't do the additional identity question as I thought I covered everything related to my background in my other supplements. I wouldn't worry too much about it if you covered some aspect of your background in your other essays.

    No, as there was nothing more to add. Highly doubt it affects decision.
