Hey, what are you guys thinking of writing about for your diversity statements? I'm not really sure what the structure should be like. Is it just like a shorter version of the PS? I think that some of my diversity stuff is already discussed briefly in my PS, and I don't want to be redundant.
Also, I'm black, and I don't want to write about anything too overused (discrimination, attending a terrible high school, etc.). I used to be a ballet dancer, which isn't that common or easy for a black person. Do you think this might make for a decent personal statement? I just don't want to sound whiny or like a victim...
