too long for diversity statement?

Postby ltezen » Sat Dec 22, 2012 1:29 pm

i know many schools don't specify a length for the diversity statement, but if my diversity statement is about 1 and 3/4 double spaced is that considered too long? would they find the length a burden?

Consider single spacing it.

Mine was 1 page single spaced last year, and went over fine.

I just logged into LSAC for the first time in forever, and you are right.

Double spaced. TY Worm.

OP, consider posting in the PS section of the forum. It can be done anonymously if you prefer. viewforum.php?f=18

They can help you make it succinct.
