So, I never considered writing a diversity statement bc I felt it didn't apply to me. Meaning, I'm a pretty mainstream law school applicant. But it seems that from this board, everyone should include one. The only thing that may make me "unique" is that I love to paint. I took advanced art classes in high school but couldn't in undergrad because you had to be an art major. Now it's more of an extracurricular, but I really enjoy it and I'm not bad. Could I write about this or is it completely irrelevant? If this doesn't work, I may just scrap the idea of writing one altogether...any feedback would be great, thanks!
I feel like writing one with the topic I had in mind (which sounds way better as an idea than in print) would do more harm than good. Will I be at a disadvantage at Y&S without one?
