Hi!

I have been panicking over this for a couple of days now. After I submitted my applications for R2, I have found out that I will be laid off by the end of January. The reason is NOT because of bad performance, but because I started a serious relationship with a coworker and it is against the policies of the firm. This can all be confirmed by both my supervisor and by my recommender.

Should I update schools? How bad does this hurt my chances? If I don't inform, will a potential admissions offer be rejected after the background check? Maybe it is better to be quiet until R2 decisions and hope they won't care if I left in January or March?

Please help!

Definitely don't panic! But definitely don't inform them. :)

But if I don't inform them, I won't pass the background check and my offer will be revoked (they will find I left the firm in January). Any suggestions?
