question about background check.. [#permalink] New post 24 May 2007, 19:06

I've been a long time lurker but now I've been compelled to post.. I think I'm freaking out for no reason, and I do hope thats what you guys tell me.

After looking at my printed out application, I noticed I incorrectly stated my salary slightly. I did my application last minute and in my haste i created a typo. My actual salary is 43,300 but I put down 44,300 on my resume. Is this 1000 difference enough to freak out about? Should I call the school?

Anyways, hope I'm just going crazy. [/i]

there is no way they can verify your salary, just employment dates. i dont think any companies volunteer salary information. anyway, a 1k discrepancy is nothing. don't worry so much.

I think there's no way they could possibly care about this, but if you are concerned you could just call someone in the admissions office and tell them.

Nothing to worry about. I (accidently) understated my salary and thought the financial aid office would contact the b-school and make it an issue- they never did.

Clearly nobody would purposely bump their salary up by one thousand dollars, it's very obviously a mistake and anyone would be crazy to even bother following up on it if they did notice the mistake.

For a background check overstating your salary slightly wont be a problem. Hiding a felony would be. Dont worry about it.
