To DS or not to DS?

Postby rcatmullnv » Thu Oct 27, 2011 3:55 pm

My entire mom's side of the family is from El Salvador. Growing up, my mom taught my brothers and I a lot about the latin culture. Additionally, I studied in Costa Rica for a summer to learn Spanish and more about the culture.

In terms of affecting my views outside my personal life (e.g., how I treat my mother, how I want to raise my kids, etc.), I don't see a huge influence of the Latin Culture in my life. Further, I've read that law schools have a healthy amount of students from a Latin lineage, so it doesn't necessarily add to your application.

Should I go through and make a Diversity Statement?

DS. You will bring diversity to a law school.

Do you personally feel that this has made you a more diverse person? If so, then yes. If you feel like you're forcing this (don't look to stats for this answer, this is a personal question), then no.
