potential ds topics...

Postby alicen » Tue Nov 02, 2010 4:52 pm

hi guys, i'm new to the forum and pretty much to law school apps as well. in looking through various schools' apps, i thought the diversity statement seemed sort of interesting, and that i could come up with a couple of possible topics. didn't know it was such a huge thing that many people choose to do before scoping out this forum though, so now i'm not sure if i really have anything worth writing about...

possible topics:
-parents don't have a lot of money -> but this is more like "parents have double-digit bank balance, no higher education," rather than extreme poverty ("grew up homeless, drug dealer, etc")
-adopted (to parents of different ethnicity)
-have albinism

any advice appreciated! again, i understand if these topics are not really worthy of a DS, so feel free to say so!

Double digit bank balance (sub $100) sounds like it qualifies for a SES DS to me.

I think all 3 topics are fine, though obviously not doing all of them together.
