Law School Admissions / Why Cornell?
« on: January 14, 2008, 08:42:26 AM »
I am a little unsure of how to approach Cornell's question, "Why Cornell?" None of my family members are alumni, and I can't really think of a compelling reason why I would choose Cornell over NYU should I get accepted to both. Any advice?

How did everyone approach their diversity statement? I am unsure whether I should use anecdotes to explain my diversity or if I should go with a plain vanilla "this is my life." I'd like to include that I am Indian American and the disadvantage of growing up as the only child of 2 immigrant parents who did not go to school here. In addition, I want to talk about the small rural town I grew up in, which further limited my opportunities. What does everyone think? I want to avoid writing a diversity statement that is a bore to read. Any advice? Thanks.
