Hello -- Unlike most posters, I'm not asking for an evaluation, but I wanted to ask for thoughts on how to handle a tricky situation.

I've applied to four top schools in round one. Been invited to interview at one of them and awaiting decisions on the other three.

Unfortunately, I've just been let go from my job through (if you ask me) no fault of my own. In fact, I was a top performer at my job up until this happened. My manager is a very toxic and manipulative person, and ultimately it will be good for me to find a healthier environment. However, I have MBA interviews coming up, and am not currently employed.

I don't want to talk about the circumstances leading to my separation from the company. I would rather not even reveal that I'm unemployed in my interviews. Can I have it both ways? What do I do from here?

Be strategic. Meaning don't lie. But avoid telling them if you can. And prepare yourself for a situation in which you can't.

Best,
