How does this relate to law school?

You don't seem to have a conclusion. You should say something about how your experience as a biracial individual will add to your experience at law school.

I understand what you're saying, but am not quite sure how to go about it. First, as written it is exactly only page, which I understand to be the desired length for diversity statements. Second, I feel that if I added something it would need to be along the lines of "I feel that these experiences would allow me to add a unique perspective to so and so law school". That just feels cheap to me.

Thoughts?

"When I was a kid my father drank a lot...he was never around. I was afraid to stay home by myself. I did it anyway. The end."

Do you see how the story can be compelling and yet tell you nothing? Nothing cheap about a conclusion.
