Though intent on attending law school after completing his undergraduate degree, Andrew majored in Financial Administration at Michigan State University in the event he followed his father into the financial services industry. Andrew then attended law school at the Detroit College of Law, where he was extremely active as student senator of his class, and worked for the alumni office and clerked for Angelo A.
