Just curious here... but are diversity statements typically 2 pages in the personal statement style?  Or are they like just 1 or 2 brief "short and sweet" paragraphs. 

That's actually something I'm struggling with.  I have drafted a 1 page DS and a 2 page DS.  Some schools actually say to submit a 1 page DS, others have no limit so I'm struggling with what to do.  I feel like my 1 page DS is just okay, but my 2 page is perhaps better (I need feedback on this as I just today drafted it).

I'm leaning towards "short and sweet" but want to make sure I'm f*ing it up horribly.  The reasons are (1) its easier, (2) it will have more of an impact and (3) my personal statement addresses some of the issues of my diversity to some extent.

If you would like another person to look over your PS and/or DS, you can PM it/them to me.
