there are some that are optional, but what if you wrote about diversity for your main essay?  do i now have to come up with something else?  (im thinking yes, but this sucks!) :)

They're not optional, despite what they say...

to be honest though, i'm sure you have been engaged in another activity that has either stimulated you emotionally or intellectually that will allow you to contribute to the diversity of thought to a entering class.

If you're serious about getting into law school (and about getting $$$) you'll take the admissions people up on any "optional" essay that you can write.  Addendums as well.  You want to tell these people as much about you as you can.  Write the two statements.  What seems like a lot of work now may greatly reduce your admissions chances, and student loan debt.
