Hey GMAT Club,

I have a bit of a unique situation, and I am concerned about the MBA verification process, not because I believe anything wrong will turn up but due to my bonus and my current relationships.

In short, I work at a small firm and there is no separated HR department that can verify the information without all of my MDs finding out. As a result, if they contact them before I break the news and my MDs find out, it could sour the relationship as they found out from a background check firm and not from me. Furthermore, if I try to stay ahead of it and speak with my MDs just after receiving my first round results, my bonus could be severely impacted as those are not paid until February. Given that last year my bonus was 40% of my total income, I would like to prevent that.

Thus, is it possible to request a postponement to contacting my current employer until, say March? Or will they simply begin to verify the information after you are accepted?

Thanks!

I find this one of the situations that you can direct this question to adcom. As I remember, I asked Duke similar situation in that all whom I know in previous company left and I do not know anyone more. Just be honest with them in your case because there are lot of cases that they face with applicants.

good luck

The verification process starts a few days or weeks after the admission offer. You probably can ask for postponement, I see no harm in doing so, if you explain your delicate situation.
You can also consider postponing your application to R2 which will obviously delay the admission results and therefore the verification process. Decision release dates for most schools for R2 are in March 2018.

Thank you all for the replies! Provided they are willing to work with me and not proceed without me it puts me at ease! I can handle the situation as long as I am the one that breaks the news!
