If I totaly lie about my work experience when applying to business
school, and make up jobs that I never had and write about them, what
are my chances of getting busted? Can schools look at tax records?
credit reports? Do they call the company? If I get busted will I get
thrown out? prosecuted? Has anyone ever been busted for such an
offense and what happened to them?
There is no answer at this time.

Not a good idea. You will inevitably get caught sooner or later and
there will be serious consequences.

College rejects applicants for lying

MBA Essay Writing Tips & Strategies
9. Don't lie or exaggerate. Applicants seldom realize how easy it is
to detect lies and half-truths in admissions essays. Don't pretend to
be someone you are not. After reading your file, committee members
have an excellent "feel" for your character and can tell when a
reported event or achievement isn't consistent with the rest of your
history. Lying is a fatal mistake. A single misrepresentation on your
application will lead us to doubt all of your other assertions.

Put Your Best Foot Forward.. And Make Sure it's Your Foot.
Well Cynic, the chances of discovery are low, but not non-existent.
Furthermore, the consequences are devastating ? far worse than
acceptance at a lower ranked school. I personally know of a corporate
officer who was forced to resign from his company after a twenty-year,
stellar career when someone disclosed to his bosses that a claimed
college achievement had never happened.
