Supplemental information- question [#permalink] New post 06 Nov 2005, 11:01
Hello Hjort,

Can you please advice me on this concern i have.

I am applying to Stanford and want to include my resume in the supplemental information, because i feel i have not been able to put accross my specific accomplishments in either of the essays or in the work experience questions.

Will it be seen as going over the top, or is it ok for me to do that? There is some information that will be redudant to the rest of the application.

Here is what the official guideline is : "If there is any other information that is critical for us to know and is not captured elsewhere (e.g., extenuating circumstances affecting academic or work performance), please feel free to include that information here. Please do not include any additional essays."

Any insight will be greatly appreciated.

I would send it:

1) You clearly feel that it would provide a valuable addition to the information they already have about you
and
2) A resume is not a type of essay

Hjort,

I just got my AWA score and ended up with a 3.5- 19th percentile.

Do i need to reconsider my school selection because of this, or can i count on the rest of my Gmat (770- Q51 and V42-96th percentile) and my essays to make up for this. I dont think i am a bad essay writer, but I think what happened was that I wrote the analysis of an argument like an analysis of an issue.

Thanks.

Your impressive verbal score combined with strong essays should offset fears about your ability to express yourself.
