77 Alumni Admissions Ambassadors Help Recruit the Class of 2021

August 7, 2018 | This year, 77 alumni from locations across the world participated in the Alumni Admissions Ambassadors Program by helping recruit the Class of 2021.

Special recognition goes to several Alumni Admissions Ambassadors: Alex Caruso (JD ’17), who contacted every admitted student from his undergraduate alma mater, University of Southern California; Board of Advisors member Steve DeLorenz (JD ’86), who called almost every admitted student from his home state of New York; Brett LoVollette (JD ’10), who called international students from his office in Tokyo, Japan; and Kai Lawrence (JD ’11), who met with an admitted student in Hawaii and brought him along to a local bar association event.
