    Should I answer this prompt with a "Why Us" essay, or a Gap Year essay, or something else??

    "3. Is there anything additional that you would like to address that is not already reflected in your application? (Optional – Limit your response to 250 words or less.)"

      They don't want much -- 250 words -- and it is optional. What do you want to address that isn't already in your application?? Don't blather just for the sake of filling a space. It is like teaching a pig to sing, it wastes your time an annoys the pig.
