Optional Diversity Statement Question

Post by wightjm » Tue Oct 25, 2011 12:16 pm

The prompt:

X Law School strives to admit an entering class of individuals with a wide variety of experiences and perspectives. How might your own background and/or experience add to the diversity of our student body?

Would writing about a specific legal clinic they offer at the school and a personal experience with that subject and area be fitting or am I pushing it?

It's hard to say-- you're being a bit vague.

What kind of clinic is this, and what kind of experience have you had with that subject? Did this experience make you a more diverse candidate?
