So I'm in the middle of a job search with my BME degree. I'm going to be interviewing with a company for an engineering job that I'm really excited about. Problem is, I'm also waiting to find out if I'll get into med school (I'm on 3 waitlists, and I have 3 more interviews scheduled) this year. When the company contacts my references, who all know of my med school plans, they probably won't hire me. Should I tell the references directly not to mention my med school plans? Will they do this for me? I certainly won't be telling the company myself.
