(Optional) Is there any further information that you wish to provide to the Admissions Committee? (Please use this space to provide an explanation of any areas of concern in your academic record or your personal history.)


I wanted to use this essay to highlight some of my other strengths that I didn't get a chance to show in my other essays. Do you guys think this is acceptable? Further information can refer to positive things too right? I know that it says to explain areas of concern in my academic record.. but I honestly don't have a concern about my grades/GMAT and I wouldn't just want to waste these 300-500 optional words.

I would used it ONLY if there is something truly significant that you want to mentions. I've heard "the best way to use the optional essay is to not use it at all"
