Academic Record Statement - optional essay, do it?

Recommended Posts

Hey all,


I'm working on my supplemental and there's an optional essay to speak to my academic record. My grades are fine, a little lower than I'd like but I had a difficult major. 


The only thing I could think of writing for this essay would be that since I was in engineering I never had enough time to focus on my science courses. But that's more of an excuse than anything.


Do I bother writing anything for this essay? 


Thanks for your input!

I would write something. I talked to someone who didn't get an interview because she decided not to fill out an optional essay. Apparently it's strongly encouraged. For my academic essay I wrote about the struggle I had in deciding what I wanted to do after high school and turns I made when attending different schools.
