On the Common Application, there is a box asking you to supply “Additional Information.”
Use this area for these types of things:
- Include a part-time job – Admissions officers LOVE students who work after school.
- Activity Resume – College Admissions officers differ on these and in general prefer they not be used. But if you are involved in an activity that would likely be unfamiliar to admissions personnel such as YADA, the Civil Rights team, or Lewiston Youth Advisory Council, you can either submit a resume that describes these groups OR use the “Additional Information” block to do so.
