What should I include in the diversity statement for Yale’s grad school app?

A quick search on Google reveals this:

A diversity statement is for anyone who is not middle of centre in respect of your demographic and so they are interested in your experiences. In the same way that I am British-Indian growing up in London and as to how that has impacted me.

After having looked through all of these links I’d mention the following:

  • It has only positively impacted me
  • Made you work harder
  • Some discussion of statistics of how you fit within the wider community
  • Anecdotal evidence of how this has helped amplify your success

All of this should help :slight_smile:
