if you're a URM you have to be twice as good at something and speak up.
Didn't write any socio-economically focused statements and no diversity statements.I think you should write on whatever topic you think will best represent you and make the strongest impression on the adcom. If that has to do w/ your socioeconomic experience or race, do it. If not, don't, because it may result in a weaker essay than you might have otherwise written, and that's just not good strategy.Not to be blunt, but adcoms will take note of your race simply by seeing which (if any) box you check on the application. It's not necessary for you to write a diversity statement in order for them to recognize your racial background. Also, be sure to acknowledge in yourself that there are many other personal characteristics you have that make you diverse. Race is an important factor, but not the only one.
