I guess this question would only matter if you lied on your application (I hope none of us did! ), but just out of curiosity, does anyone know if schools check up on the validity of your experiences? I mean, some of us have some pretty awesome and unique experiences that almost seem like, "Wow, did that person really do x, y, and z?" At the same time, however, I think it would be a huge hassle for schools to check up on every single applicant's experiences. So, do they just take your word for it? Or do they check on only extraordinarily-sounding experiences? Or maybe a random check?
