Should I try to explain my networking skills in the Additional Information section of the Common App?
I took an extra class at a local university (MIT) and asked the teacher/ grad student to come to my high school club and present his background and the work he has done at the university. I also was a study participant for a different local university's research program (Harvard) and had the program director come into my club to present about the study. I wrote about these in the Additional Info section of the Common App because it doesn't really fit anywhere else on the Common App. In total, my explanation is only 120 words. Should I include this, or will it confuse/turn off the admissions officer?

How does karma work?
The system is simple: you receive karma (sort of like a credit) when you help others. If you're short on karma, you can do any of the following to earn more:
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on a question you post
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on an answer you post
if your answer is marked accepted
- 10 karma for reviewing an essay
- 10 karma if your essay review is rated 5 ⭐️
You can then use your karma to submit an essay for review or guarantee an expert answer on Q&A.
You could try working this information into a supplemental essay! I'm not sure if this is the type of thing to include in additional information, only because I've mostly seen it used to include extra activities or extenuating circumstances for grades/family matters.
Hope that helped!!! :)
