I've seen people worry about admissions so long that others are worrying about the bar while they are still worried about admissions

At a certain point, you have to live your life.

You can always write a diversity statement and make your case, but I doubt if it will make much difference. My understanding is that it's not just about whether there are few lawyers from your specific group, but lots of sociological and historical factors weigh into the equation. For example, there probably aren't many white South African lawyers in the U.S. either, but a white South African isn't considered URM.

I don't think being Jewish/Russian/Persian is going to make any difference, as none of those groups are underrepresented as compared to their percentage of the population.
good point, even if not a URM you can still mention it

what is their average rate of pay? Are they actually taking cases or just doing office manager/paralegal work at a higher billable hour?

Many schools list LLM or SJD  (etc) students as "employed" too

I am suggesting that MCL can provide certain students academic support and tutoring in a small class environment. The result can be a turn-around into a successful law school experience and the opportunity to complete the JD, study for, and pass the California bar exam.
So is that a yes or a no?
