We were able to help one of our alums find a summer job. Her employer just shared the following note with me - "Just to let you know that she is one of the very best summer helpers that I have ever seen. She works hard all day, rarely sits down, is looking for work, and does her work very well. If she desires, we need to find additional work for her once she has completed this work assignment." People sometimes ask why we are so confident about our students futures...and that is why!!!

A member of our Class of 2012 is already thinking about law school in the autumn of 2016. She contacted us looking for help on low cost LSAT prep options. We reached out to our friends in the legal community and they gave her some great ideas. She sent us the following note - Thank you, I am following up on those leads. I am really thankful to have Detroit Cristo Rey in my corner. You guys are always there to back us when we need you and rooting us on. Detroit Cristo Rey alums are the best!!!
