UCLA Supplemental Questionaire

Hi! I'm a senior in high school and I applied to UCLA. Recently, I got a request from them requesting "supplemental information" which goes something like:
After reviewing your application we would like to provide you the opportunity to elaborate on information about yourself which you feel might be helpful in reviewing your application for UCLA. This is an optional supplemental component to the review process which may assist our readers in further evaluating your application. Any information you provide in your essay response(s) will not negatively impact our assessment of your application.

Please feel free to respond to any one (or both) of the questions below. You may want to expand upon and provide more detailed information than was previously provided on your UC application to assist our readers in fully understanding your academic preparation, personal accomplishments or obstacles, or commitment to achieving a university education.
Any UCLA students/applicants know what this means? What kind of students get this? Thanks!

    This means that either something on your academic record or something mentioned on your personal insight essays that needs clarification before UCLA can make their admission decision. Respond to the questions that pertain to your situation.

    See the reasons below.

    The Augmented Review pool should be limited in size to no more than 15 percent of all applicants.

    The criteria for referring an applicant for Augmented Review include the following:
    1. Evidence of focus on an area of special talent which may have limited a student’s time to participate in a broader range of activities.
    2. Evidence of character traits that imply a strong likelihood of making a significant contribution to campus life.
    3. Evidence of significant academic achievement or the potential for academic achievement at the University in spite of extraordinary or compound disadvantage or learning difference, or physical disability or other unusual circumstances.
    4. Evidence of significant improvement in the academic record accompanied by one or both of the following: (1) reasons for the initial poor performance; and (2) sustained and in-depth participation in educational outreach programs, which demonstrate the applicant’s commitment to succeed academically within a challenging environment.
    5. Evidence of relative lack of access to, counseling about, or support to take college preparatory, honors, Advanced Placement (AP) or International Baccalaureate (IB) classes or required college entrance examinations.
