This is a little off topic, but does Chicago like optional essays (diversity, "why Chicago", etc)? It said on their website that anything longer than two or three pages would have to be particularly compelling to be worth reading, so I just submitted my regular personal statement. Now that decisions are coming, I'm starting to second guess myself, especially since my numbers are on the low end. If they do take optional essays, I kind of regret not sending one, especially since my undergrad work revolved around law and economics, Coase theorem, blah blah blah. Thanks!
