Hi

I made a mistake in my application. I stated the wrong figure of bonus. The school asked the bonus 'you have earned' in the past 12 months. However, I stated the expected bonus for the incoming round. I failed to notice that this schl asked for the past 12 months when I ran check on my printed PDF before submission becoz th pdf did not mentioned '12 months'. I just noticed this mistake when I logged on to check my application online.

The difference between what I have earned in the past 12 months and what I have stated in te application is significat due to the economic crisis in the the last bonus round.

Should I report the ad-com before they release their final decision? Will this affect my appln status? or Will Kroll think that I cheated?

thanks-appreciated all your help

Really dumb question here....just trying to register for this Kroll check, and it asks for your "school ID provided in your admissions packet". Hummmm, which of the 17 diff ID's do they want here? UNI? PID? Or have I just missed a step entirely, are we supposed to be notified when we are to begin this process?

I just sent my transcripts to the admissions office a week or two ago, haven't heard any follow up. Any advice would be much appreciated!


Hi Cidney! Under Kroll Verification in the "to do" checklist, you'll find the school ID in bold at the very bottom. It'll also tell you what your password is which is YYYYMMDD. And to sign in, you use your columbia email address. Its all explained on the bottom of that Kroll page!

Anyone gone through the Kroll process yet for Tepper 2011? If so, do you know what they are verifying this year?

When do you receive the Kroll background check email/letter/request? Is it after you've been admitted, or after you've confirmed that you'll be matriculating/paid your deposit? I'm a recent admit and I don't see a Kroll background check on the admitted students website's To-Do list.

Personally, I think people are reading the "credit report" part of Kroll's background check incorrectly.

Does Kroll pull a credit report? Sure. Could a school rescind an offer because of bad credit? As a lawyer, I just don't see how that is possible, unless some how one mentioned their "good" credit on the application and thus lied about it. I wouldn't worry one second about this to anyone reading the thread.

Why would Kroll pull a credit report? A credit report has lots of information on it, such as previous addresses, employers, etc., that can be used to check against stuff that was in your application.

This has absolutely nothing to do with "bad" credit though.

Given the fact that most B-school graudates are able to get into a decent job after graduation and the fact that student loan payments dont start until after 6 months post-graduation, I really dont see how a credit score is relevant. Also, international students with bad credit will then get away with it, right? So, how can an admission be rescinded based on credit score.

If your debt to income ratio is already out of control then how are you going to handle more debt with no income?


I agree, it would be strange to be rejected after they check your credit, but the debt to income ratio is a legitimate concern--despite the deferral of your student loan payments until after you graduate. Some people have mortgages, car payments, credit card debt, even college loans to pay off--all at once! How are they going to pay for that when they are going to school full-time, especially with no savings? It would be very difficult to take out a student loan that covers all of that, given the liquidity and credit crises that the market is experiencing--just look at Sallie Mae. Just like there are a few cases of people who blatantly lie on their app and schools rescine their offer as a result; there is probably few borrowers who have atrocious credit to the point that schools must rescind their offer. In the end, I bet schools will try everything to make the financial packages work, as opposed to the fraudulent applicants who are kicked to the curb.

Can any current student shed some light on this? they hire Kroll to do background checks. student must fill out a "data-sheet" (whatever that means) then kroll will do the rest.

What is asked in this "data sheet" and how do they go about verifying employment?
Do they just verify current employment, last 2 jobs, all jobs?
How do they do so, do we give them the contact info of your supervisor and they call/email them, or do they randomly call the public number listed for the company and ask to be connected to HR?
What if your file is not in the HR records, are you basically screwed?
What else do they ask the employer: job title, salary, etc?

I wonder how they will verify a self-employed applicant. I have been working in my family startup and we do not have any HR dept. We only have a single office phone and most of the employees use thr respective cell phones to communicate. If they call the client's HR dept then they wont be given any detail but if they call my recommender then they will be able to get details. I am wondering what if they call up few times and nobody picks up phone from my office (it wont be the first time :) ).

They'll ask you for help getting in touch with someone at your job. I had a similar situation when they had some trouble reaching someone at one of my part-time jobs, so I got an email asking me to have someone from there contact the Kroll rep.

Guys... have a quick Q. I do not remeber the exact details of my promotions, I work for a small company and all this information is blurred... My application asks for specific dates for each position I held... I have a similar problem with my previous organization. Which was almost 6 years ago. Any thoughts on how I could handle this?

Does the Kroll application ask for specific dates of each position held? Or does the mba application ask for specific dates held? They are probably going to go off of what was in the employment section of the application, which might not have the drill down detail to that level and instead just asks at company level...depending upon what you put.

Well, i am applying to Berkeley Haas EWMBA and they say that create a new section for each postion held, even if within the same company.... I have a general idea, so not sure what to do

I did some reading on this lastnight and I believe they ask for past an current. They do not say why the check is being performed but they need to verify your past. Should be pretty painless.

Guys, I have a strage dilemma. My HR system uses a title that is different form what we use in public. The HR system is just some old system and has no real world relevance, but that is what is officially stored.

What do I do?
