I have a question about submission of the diversity statement. If I recall correctly, you mentioned that if the statement is not required, it may be best to not include it. If it is this the case for Yale, in which the statement is only optional?

Dr. Streete, thank you for hosting this virtual information session and answering our questions. What do you believe is the most promising personal quality of a potential application?

Good afternoon! Thank you for hosting this webinar. I am currently a MA student, and I have done quite a bit of research on various programs, but I still don't know how to deduce which would be best for me without actually visiting with professors.
