I've written (somewhat) of a diversity statement, though I'm not sure it qualifies. I'm trying to focus on socioeconomic diversity, since I'm not a URM. Trying to make a meaningful diversity statement but not sure it's coming through properly... I really wanted to highlight how I overcame diversity/adversity, but not sure I painted it in the right light for it to be considered a "diversity statement..." I'm also not sure if the paragraphs really flow together, or if it seems like I'm jumping around.
Also, it's just shy of a page and a half typed, so I may need to shorten it... Generally speaking, I think diversity statements are supposed to be closer to one page.
Anywho, I would be grateful for anyone willing to take a look! And I'm definitely down to do the same for you!

As a fellow child of poor rural America, I congratulate you on making it out. However, I think socioeconomic diversity is not what law school's are looking for in a "diversity" statement. Your experiences are important, however, and I think they would be better served as a personal statement, since overcoming adversity and accomplishing all you have is what has made you who you are today.

It reads like "whine whine whine", then some more whine, then taking a steamy dump on all your family (justifiably so, but still), and in the end some bragging. Not a preffered nomenclature as Walter Sobchak would say.
