Law School Applications / Risk of Employer Contact
« on: November 05, 2009, 03:03:48 AM »
With the standard law school application comes an authorization to contact your employer should they need to verify any information in the app.  My question that I wanted some other people's take on was what the risk of this actually happening would be, and whether there is anything I can do to mitigate this.  I am of course truthful, but would prefer any schools wishing to verify my employment to do so only after deciding that I would be admitted presuming that what I have said is truthful.  Would indicating this in any way, as a matter of courtesy only, cast negatively on an application?

If a law school were to contact my employer to verify anything in my application, I am virtually certain that it would result in my termination. I'm a tax accountant at a CPA firm and another accountant at the firm was fired for a substantially similar reason.  They don't want to invest in us if we're not committed to the career.

I realize that an employer contact may very well be unlikely, but I can't afford to wind up without a job particularly if I'm also left without an offer.
