I had the pre-law advisor from my undergrad read through my personal statement and diversity statement and he gave me a little bit of feedback but admitted he was not exactly up-to-speed on what's expected in the essays. The advice from him that I am questioning is that he told me to be more "matter of fact" instead of telling a story and describe the basic facts "as clinically and briefly as possible". Does this sound like good advice or a good approach to a diversity statement (or any essay, for that matter)? When writing a diversity statement, do adcoms expect it to be "just the facts"?? Thanks for any input!
