Members don't see this ad.
So I searched through some of the other background check threads but did not find an answer to my question.

I just received an email regarding the request and filled it out/sent it off etc. However, of the schools listed as participating in the Certiphi background check, the two schools I interviewed at this year are not on there.

Is this a glitch or are these schools (which are well known) using Certiphi but are not on the participating list?

Actually never mind I figured out the answer. I just got an acceptance from Tulane which is who the background check must have been from. The odd thing was I didn't interview there this year (but I was wait listed last year). I hadn't read any stories of people getting in without interviewing for that cycle but I guess there are exceptions!

do people get one background check for every school on the background check list? so 3 acceptances means one would get 3 emails requesting the check? (or does one do it for all of them)

How'd you know you got accepted to Tulane if you didn't get a letter?

I received a congratulatory email from the dean of admissions.

Based on what I have seen with some schools (like Tulane) some people get multiple (5+) from the same school, all at the same time. Don't know why but that's what some people have been reporting on SDN.
