Personal statement for college app…?





I'm applying to a certain university and the question for the required personal statement is:"Why do you feel that (school's name) is a good match with your educational goals?"I finished the essay fine; it's about 650 words or so. There's only one problem. I'm a senior in high school (duh) and this year I started cyber school. I included an extra paragraph explaining that I decided to spend my senior year in cyber school and briefly describing the curriculum, how it has made me a more independent worker, etc.So my question is, do you think admissions officers would see this as an irrelevant detail? Or would they appreciate the clarification? Please help!
