The application is asking me to provide a short statement explaining any special circumstances that I would like Admissions committee to consider.

>>>What is this question asking me? Should I write about an extra hobbies that I have or any other career routes that i have in mind, etc. I'm really sure how to answer this question.

This is an optional section. It's an opportunity for you to share any hardships or obstacles you might have faced during your high school career or in life.

Ex: Your brother died in a motorcycle accident, but you learned to appreciate life and strive to work harder in you schoolwork and activites.
Ex: Your grandmother has cancer, and because of this, during 10th grade it was difficult for you to concentrate on your grades. But she has recovered, and now you're a straight A student!

Ex: You're handicapped, which has challenged you socially and mentally.

Something like that. If you don't have any special circumstances or anything like that, leave the portion blank.
