I've never been arrested, expelled from school, filed bankruptcy or anything of the sort. But I'm just wondering what kind of background check bschools require. Do they do a credit check?

You'll probably be asked to sign a form like this:

Quote:
NOTICE, AUTHORIZATION AND RELEASE FOR THE PROCUREMENT OF A
CONSUMER AND/OR INVESTIGATIVE CONSUMER REPORT
I, the undersigned consumer, do hereby authorize THE PHYSICIANS COMMITTEE FOR RESPONSIBLE
MEDICINE by and through its independent contractor, KROLL BACKGROUND AMERICA, INC. (—KBA“), to
procure a consumer report and/or investigative consumer report on me. I understand that this authorization and release
shall be valid for subsequent consumer and/or investigative consumer reports during my period of employment with THE
PHYSICIANS COMMITTEE FOR RESPONSIBLE MEDICINE for the purpose of investigating any incidents of
workplace misconduct or criminal activity for which I am alleged to have been involved during my employment.
These above-mentioned reports may include, but are not limited to, information as to my character, general reputation,
and personal characteristics, discerned through employment and education verifications (to include GPA); personal
references; personal interviews; my personal credit history based on reports from any credit bureau; my driving history,
including any traffic citations; a social security number trace; present and former addresses; criminal and civil
history/records; any other public record.

I further authorize any person, business entity or governmental agency who may have information relevant to the above to
disclose the same to THE PHYSICIANS COMMITTEE FOR RESPONSIBLE MEDICINE by and through KBA,
including, but not limited to any and all courts, public agencies, law enforcement agencies and credit bureaus, regardless
of whether such person, business entity or governmental agency compiled the information itself or received it from other
sources.
I understand that I am entitled to a complete and accurate disclosure of the nature and scope of any investigative consumer
report of which I am the subject upon my written request to KBA, if such is made within a reasonable time after the date
hereof. I also understand that I may receive a written summary of my rights under 15 U.S.C. § 1681et. seq.
