On the stanford application, (item 12), you are allowed to submit an additional page of information (optional). I am planning to use this page to emphasize my upward trend in my academic strength throughout my high school years (I will include a chart with explanation). I am going to focus on how I learned English quickly as a second language (this is my fourth year in an english speaking country) and how that affected my academic strength (the upward curve is looks very nice).
I know you probably will tell me that I should not EA because they will want to look at my senior year marks, but I have my heart set on EA and I will EA! Please tell me if that optional page is redundant, or even, detrimental. I know that adcoms will probably figure out an approximate curve even if I did not attach the page, but I want to bring that to their attention so that they spend more time on it. It would be a disaster if they thought, “hey, why does this kid have so many B’s in freshman year?” …and then they toss away my app.
