Hello! It's my first post here and 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?

That is a tough one for sure. Unfortunately, you are still in the application process so they will need to know if you are invited to interview. Even if you don't tell them, they will find it when they run a background check, something I believe most, if not all, schools will do and this may result in an offer being rescinded or modified. I would reach out to a consulting company that offers free sessions and bounce this off of them. (or post in the ask admission consultants section here if you are a little more patient) I'm sure this is not the first time a situation like this has come up.
