More than 75 students and alumni completed applications and were interviewed for one of the coveted spots to get a chance to work with Donald Trump and earn a salary of $250,000.
"I think it would be a wonderful opportunity and a lot of fun," said April Ancira, a 2003 M.B.A. alumna who is working as an operations analyst at Ancira Enterprises. "My path has been pre-destined in San Antonio, and this would give me the opportunity to experience a new city and another industry."
Candidates who successfully pass through the numerous rounds of interviews will be flown to Los Angeles to compete as semi-finalists. Taping begins this fall for the third season of the show.
