Other section

Recommended Posts

Would it be useful to use the "other" section of the ABS to talk about life experiences, the type of thing that would go in a personal statement? Without being too specific I mean things that you went through as opposed to thing that you've done. The restricted character count makes me hesitant as I would rather explain these experiences more fully to show the growth/learning that has come from them. Since most schools don't really have essays I would still like to bring this into my application as these experiences have definitely shaped me as a person and applicant.

Edit: I also have people who could verify these experiences

I think you should include this in your ABS section if you have space and if you feel like it is really significant. I personally felt that there were personal experiences that were important to me that I wanted to include in my ABS when I applied and I think it gave a better representation of my experiences as a whole.
