Diversity Statement as PS?

Diversity Statement as PS?
« on: November 10, 2006, 02:18:33 PM »
Just a quick question- I wrote about my original PS about a work experience that included an "I realized I wanted to go to law school" moment that occured while working on a significant project. However, I just realized that the additional diversity statement needed for several schools that I wrote is far more passionate and thoughtful than my original PS, even though it is just about me adjusting to a new part of the country for undergrad. Would it be appropriate to use this diversity statement as my PS at schools that only require the PS even though it doesn't have a "this is why I want to attend law school" theme? Does the PS have to center on law school?

Trust your instinct and use the DS.  The "why law" theme usually makes for a boring PS anyways.

Thanks, that's what I was leaning towards.
