Common App Additional Information

What information do you typically like to see in the additional information section of the Common App? If there are things we could not fit in honors and extra curricular activities, can they go here? Can this also be a spot to paste an abbreviated version of the resume?

You can definitely add in anything that didn't fit earlier, especially if you feel it's important to your application. A resume is probably not the best idea, especially if you've already covered certain elements in other parts of your application.

Traditionally, this space is for anything that didn't fit on your application, or any unusual circumstances, like an illness, family responsibility, or learning disability.

Hope this helps!
