I received an e-mail the other day from Certiphi asking for consent and a fee to perform the same background check that they performed a couple of months ago for a different school. Only this time, I don't know what school it is, if there is any. And I really don't feel like paying again for the same background check.

The following is the first paragraph in the e-mail:
"You have received this email because you have been conditionally accepted by one or more of the schools participating in the ADEA-facilitated program for performing criminal background checks on conditionally accepted applicants. Please note that the requesting school will be notified if consent is not provided, and that failure to provide consent may result in failing to meet the requesting school`s admissions requirements."

Can someone tell me if they've gotten a similar e-mail in the past and confirm the legitimacy of this. Also, what schools do this? I kind of have an idea, as it has to be one of the schools I interviewed at, but don't know for sure.

You probably just got accepted or got off the waitlist at one of the schools you interviewed at.
