The mosaic / the list

Some college ask you:

Is there any further information regarding your personal situation or achievements that you think we should know when considering your possible acceptance to X?

Some students wonder what they could write. Well, sometimes you don’t need to write anything, but sometimes it might be a good idea to write something. How do you figure that out?

A college gets a lot of information about you – from different sources, in different ways. You should think of this information as of a mosaic.

How do you make sure nothing important is omitted? Write a list of all the important things a college should know about you. For every application check if you all points covered – by your essays, portfolios, short answers and possibly teacher recommendations (you should think of the things teachers don’t know about you, so they won’t address).
