Has anyone had the background check service verify their extra volunteer activities. I'm not making any up...I only ask b/c for some of these I wouldn't even know how someone would verify ones I've done in the past.

Thanks...jimmy.

I don't think so. The only one I could remotely think would is possibly HBS since they ask for contact info for ECs.

At Wharton they would most probably do a very thorough check on just about everything. Be honest.

They likely won't verify any extra-curriculars unless it's something quite exemplary. It stands to reason, that it probably won't count for much either, unless it's something quite exemplary.
