We have calculated the Linear magnetoconductance across a vertical parabolic quantum dot with a magnetic field in the direction of the current. Gate voltage and magnetic field an tuned at the degeneracy point between the occupancies N=2 and N=3, close to the singlet-triplet transition for N=2. We find that the conductance is enhanced prior to the transition by nearby crossings of the levels of the three-particle dot. Immediately after it is depressed by roughly 1/3, as long as the total spin S of the three-electron ground state doesn't change from S=1/2 to S=3/2, due to spin selection rule. At low temperature this dip is very sharp, but the peak is recovered by increasing the temperature.
