Do I need a DS??

Postby a_evans89 » Fri Dec 17, 2010 9:37 am

I'm sure this has been gone over in previous posts----but, here's my question...

Would a DS do me any good if the contents I would put in it are in my PS??
FYI, I briefly touch on each of these topics in my PS:
URM status
Once being homeless
Veteran Status
Working full time in college

Thanks in advance.

If you briefly touch on them in your PS, and that's all you want to say about these issues, then there isn't a need for a DS. But if you want more depth with anything in particular, then write about it! Can't hurt (unless it's poorly written)

I didn't write a DS, but my PS was full of DSey stuff. If you only touch on your URMness on your PS I would either expand on it or write a DS to make sure you get the boost
