"Additional Information" in supplement/common app

<p>whenever an application says "additional information", what should you do?</p>

<p>i feel like it wouldn't be good to leave it blank...but i dont know what to write in it? please help me!!! thank you!</p>

<p>it's just a space for you to clarify some confusion. For example, I took the ACT and i made a mechnical mistake. So I went ahead and explain why i got such an unbelievable low score.</p>

<p>I didn't write anything because my counselor clarified my academic circumstances in her letter of recommendation (I'm an AP/honors student with a 34 ACT but I've been dropped with an F from two classes, and failed a few others, including two semesters of gym, and possibly a third now). I felt that if I added anything it would sound like I was whining/trying to make excuses for my performance, so I left it blank.</p>

<p>if i dont have any confusion that i need to clarify, should i leave it blank? does leaving it blank look like you dont care?</p>

<p>No, leaving it blank simply means that nothing needs clarification. Of course, you could be bold (I'm serious here) and write something like "I love _______ University!! <333" or something similar. Or put in a nice quote. Plenty of people leave it blank, but if you don't feel comfortable doing that, you could always put in something totally unique.</p>
