Write about how you seem to be an attractive girl. Those are underrepresented in law school.

all they want to know is if you are a URM who forgot to bubble it into the appropriate bubble. Its just a URM question.

Teaching experience is not unique in law school. I would say that aside from paralegals, it is the most represented type of work experience. I think you'd be wasting your time writing a DS on it, and it might even be counterproductive.

Also, this made me LOL because it's true.

+1 This couldn't be more true.

However, I think there is a negative correlation between school rank and hot girls. A couple friends of mine (that I met while studying for the LSAT) go to lower T1s and T2s. The FB pics of the girls at their school are ridiculous. There are some solid eights and nines at those schools. Meanwhile my T14 is filled with sixes that act like nines because there are no nines around.

So I shouldn't write anything based on my experience living abroad or majoring in Education?

If you want to discuss it in your PS those could be fine topics, but it's not the kind of thing a DS is for.

Ok, thanks. I'm not writing a diversity statement for any other school, but this school is a top contender and it isn't specifically labeled "Diversity Statement", it's just "Optional Statement". Thanks for the help.
