SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) Hey everyone, I am currently applying to medical school with a physiological science major with a gpa of 3.92 and have a 34 on my MCAT score (12 11 11). I have lots of clinical experience, research and leadership experience. However earlier in the year I was convicted of a DUI. It was really unfair because I was sleeping in the car to sober up before I drove home but a cop saw me and thought something was wrong and one thing led to another and I was convicted of a DUI. I talked to my lawyer and he said it will take 3 years for them take to it off my record. Now I know the application only asks for felony records and a DUI is a misdemeanor. But I was wondering once they do a background check and they see a DUI what will they do? I really dont feel its fair for one night to take away the 4 long and hard years of college I put in. What do you guys think of my chance of getting into a medical school? Do you know if medical schools care or look for misdemeanors? Any advice of any kind would be nice.
