beginning March 4 and concluding with the championship game on March

AUDITION A BIG HIT
House was packed with over 130 GW alumni and students for the Apprentice
audition last month. Alumni traveled from as far as California for
the unique opportunity. Dan Moss, BBA ’04, now at Suffolk
Law School in Boston, flew down on a 5:30 a.m. flight to participate
in the try-outs. Callbacks are sworn to secrecy, so we will have to wait and see
if the next season of the Apprentice includes a GW contestant!
and students compete for a spot on the Apprentice.
