I have this one experience I have deeply connected with and I want to continue my answer in the additional information section. This is for Duke's question on leadership and I want to go beyond the 400 word count.

I would caution against this unless the secondary instructions explicitly state otherwise. If a school wanted to read more, they would have implemented a higher word count. Your best best is to be more succinct. Just my thoughts.

Don't do it, it will come off as you not understanding the app's instructions.
