Length of Diversity Statement

Postby Anonymous User » Tue Nov 06, 2012 6:15 pm

How long (in terms of # of words/double-spaced page length) is the DS supposed to be? I've heard that it should only be about a page from some pepople, but that it can be as long as the PS from other people... any clarification would be greatly appreciated!

I would keep it at a page.

OP, I've been wondering this as well. Mine is just over a page single spaced, but I'm not sure if that's too long.

I'm pretty sure that it's supposed to be double spaced.


+1. I think there's a general standard of having everything double-spaced.

You could email the school and ask their preference regarding length
