Harvard Diversity Essay
« on: August 16, 2005, 05:30:31 PM »
I have a 1 page essay that I'm submitting to U Mich for diversity regarding my middle eastern heritage (i'm 3rd generation) and my seizure disorder that has been controlled for almost 4 years.  Should I include it in my Harvard app. or should I just hope for the best with just my regular PS and resume?

read the last page of the Harvard app, second to last paragraph I believe, where it talks about the PS.  That should help you make your decision.

Yeah, I did.  I just wanted to get people's opinions on if it would help or hurt.

I like the blatant pandering and overly self-confident statement under your posts.... :o

I've worked hard to get where I am, and I'm just stating my opinion....and I would be confident if my LSAT was higher.  I don't think I'll get into harvard because they won't let my LSAT in.

Throw it in. I am submitting a diversity statement and personal statement to all my applications, expect Yale probably. I don't think an extra statement can hurt, and most schools want to know what you can add to their student body in terms of different types of diversity.
