    does your boss know you're leaving?

    to all those who are applying for grad school and currently employed, does your boss know you're leaving?

    yes...I work at a small nonprofit and told her yesterday, giving 2 months notice, since i'll be relocating to Cali in May. She was happy for me, and glad i gave so much notice (been here 2.5 yrs)

    FYI, you can click on "poll results" in the lower-right area of any poll without casting a vote.

All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country."

    They know at work that I've applied for planning schools in the fall and been accepted at some of them. I wish I knew if I am leaving... although I've gotten in to 3 out of 4 schools I applied to so far, I don't know about the $$$. And I'm starting to get wound up about that. Do I really want to go, right now, enough to swallow the price tag? Ugh....starting to wish I'd done more thinking about that end of it...

    No, But I am leaving either way. Been equally as focused on landing a new job in addition to applying for school, just in case school doesn't work out.

    Re: Telling Boss

    I told my boss when I was applying (she wrote me a recommendation), and my entire company is very supportive about grad school-- and they're all waiting impatiently to see where I get in. I'm just nervous about getting rejections b/c then I'll have to tell everyone.

    I told as few people at work as possible so as to avoid any awkwardness in the event I didn't get accepted and had to stay on. But I also told my boss when I was applying to get a recc. letter.

    I told my bosses several months ago that I was applying to places... but I suspect they may have forgotten that this means I'll actually be *leaving*. I'm reluctant to bring it up lest I get fired. Unlikely, but still...
