Personal Statement Vs Diversity Statement

Postby TonyStark » Thu Oct 26, 2017 10:47 am

Hello TLS community, I'm trying to decide if I should write both a PS and a Diversity Statement or just a PS.

Basically, my PS is an "Overcoming Adversity" essay, it is a pretty good story. The only thing is, the adversity I am talking about makes me a very diverse student which would be a good topic for a diversity statement.

My question is - Should I either just submit it as a PS even though it shows I am a diverse student, or should I try and split it into two and submit it as a diversity statement, and make a new PS?

Thanks in advance.

It's kind of difficult to give any feedback without at least a bit more detail. If your PS is totally devoted to the topic in a way that highlights your diversity, then you likely don't need a DS. But it all depends on what you're categorizing as diversity and how it ties in to your current PS.
