Yeah, I filled out 20, left out a few too.

Uh 1 work experience shouldn't count against you, just won't be very strong.

Yeah I feel like 20.. is to dess. I'm filling out 15, excluding one time events. I have 3 work experiences.. but there is a problem.

I have my reference contact for only one of the three (and they know about this)

And for one I got fired, and the other one I just left loll.. :( I think I'm just going to risk it and put their names and numbers and hope they don't call :$

I would provide the reference, or leave out the employment all together. Not providing a reference would look worse than them calling and finding out you got fired. Remember they aren't going to call to find out how good of an employee you were, Ivey is only going to call to ensure that the information you provided is true and correct.

I meant I'm still going to give the reference, but I'm just going to take the chance and not let the people I ditched or got fired by know that I'm using them as a contact reference. Oh say word? They only check if the info is correct? Where did you hear this?

Hmm, I'm still kinda scared. I'm going to try to call my employers and see if they are willing to comply or else I'm going to have 1 work experience, add activities to 20, and two kickas essays.

That really depends on the activity, like my top ones are like all leadership positions so I added a bit more explanation than like let's say an activity of playing for a Varsity Team.. which doesn't need much explanation.

And yeah man, you'll get in don't worry.

It's not what I heard, it's what I read

Provide a contact name, position, as well as current email address and telephone number for verification of all activities. Email is our preferred method to reach your contacts. Applications lacking contact name and details for verification purposes will not be considered for admission to the HBA Program.
