Some undergraduate programs request the completion of a supplementary application – sometimes it is mandatory for admission and other times it is optional but may help with the admission process. Often, supplementary applications are short essays about your involvement in extra-curricular activities, volunteer positions or jobs. Generally, these applications are interested in learning more about your skills and interests. Thus, it’s helpful to get involved with clubs, councils or volunteer organizations during your high school years.
