Things to put in Additional Info section of application

Recommended Posts

What do you think i should put in the additional information on the application?Any tips of what colleges would like to see there?should i write an additional essay? or should i put my CV?

also, i learned that in the US they like resume, not a CV..well then what's the difference and for what should i look out mostly? i dont want to make a mistake,and turn out not serious and sloppy

What do the ibers think about this? :D

i don't know what a CV is so i cannot comment on the, but when i was filing out my applications, anything i felt that should have been mentioned in the application that i couldn't i place in there. if a school didn't ask about ECs or communnity service activities i mention those in that area in the resume style.

CV=curriculum vitae...which is the same thing as a resume.

I suppose this is for US universities? Most ask you to write an essay which have specific titles. So if you do want to write something, write a sort of personal statement (the kind you'd write for UK application but shorter).

You don't really want to write a list sort of CV/resume where you list every school you've been at and so forth. If you do write about CAS, ECs, jobs etc, writing in continuous prose looks less sloppy.
