    I went to one of thoes Girls Gone Wild type things a while back during Springbreak. I had to sign a paper before entering the building stating that if I was in the background of the video, they have the right to use the film in the videos. They also took copys of everyones drivers license.
    Will the fact that I signed the paper, in anyway show up on the FBI background check that is required for med school? I think it would look bad if so, that I went to one of thoes things. I have been worried about this for quite sometime...

    :laugh: The only thing you should be worrying about is if anyone will believe your post is for real.
     
  3. Hello crackhead. Welcome to SDN. Crackhead.

    For all the other suddenly nervous premeds, know this -- there is no FBI background check.

    you'll probably be rejected outright from wherever you apply. american medical colleges hold the strictest moral standards.

    also, be sure not to mix pop rocks and cola together, or your stomach will explode.

    also, did you know the word gullible isn't in the dictionary?

    i think mythbusters should air a neurotic pre-med special.

    Once you've been accepted at the University of Utah, they require you to consent to a criminal background check in order to be admitted. I don't know if the FBI is involved, and I don't know if any other schools have a similar requirement.

    Ok, well thats a huge relief.
    The reason I brought this up was because I read this on a paper for nursing school requirements

    " health sciences programs with clinical components must submit to a national background screening process (FDLE and FBI). Students must be free from offences that could potentially disqualify the from working ina health care environment"

    Thats for nursing school. I would suppose Medical school would have at least the same or much higher standards and a process of looking up ones history.
    I guess im just over reacting. Thanks for the reaccurance.

    Even if there was an FBI background check, how the hell would they find out about something like that, why would they care, and why would the school care enough to make a fuss that you went to a Spring Break party sponsored by a sleazy video company?!

    Girls Gone Wild probably doesn't register their guest list with the FBI.

    The school won't know so don't worry about that.

    Worry about your patients recognizing you from the video. :wow:

    I swear, some of the posts I read here make me very sad. But most of all they scare me because these will be the same individuals practicing. Hopefully, this process will weed them out. But my familiarity with it says otherwise. I often wonder if most premeds suffer from Asperger's syndrome or if they just lack all common sense. I deeply apologize to those premeds and those applicants who have common sense. But oh my God!

    In response to your insult..
    Maybe I worded my question wrong, but the point of my thread was to ask if it was possible for someone to find out I was "involved" in a video like that. All I was concerned about was whether or not that could be "looked up" in a background check. I have no idea of the process of looking up ones history. That is why I was asking. That was the point of my thread. Maybe I should of entitled it: “What is the process of background checks for Med school applicants?”

    I shouldn’t of tried explaining my situation, because there are people like you who don’t respect others opinions. Different people have different beliefs. I personally feel that being a part of a sexual exploiting video is inappropriate. I surely would not want my daughter to be seen by a Gynecologist, Surgeon or Pediatrician who was involved in any type of activity exploiting females. I morally feel that my decision was inappropriate. It is not something I would want a medical school to know while choosing whether or not I get accepted in. Some may care, while others may not.

    Hopefully one day you will understand that there are differences in peoples beliefs…. When you do, learn to respect them. What may seem appropriate to you, may seem inappropriate to others. Different people have different standards of what is morally right and morally wrong. What scares me is that someone like you who thinks its not a big deal to be associated with something that, will be practicing in the future.

    Not criticizing your grammar online, because that's lame, but for future reference it is "I shouldn't have tried...".

    OP,

    You didn't do anything illegal. You may feel it was morally wrong now, but that does not mean it was illegal.

    The FBI isn't going to keep track of something like this. Why on earth would the video company report it to them? If you run for president someday, then maybe worry, but not for medical school.

    This kind of thing absolutely won't show up on any background check required for med school. As for whether the FBI or other agency might actually keep track of this kind of thing... if you ever run for public office you might find out. :cool:

    we've all learned good things come in pairs, so I don't think it's going on your record.

    The FBI might care if they already were tracking you for some reason and had a file on you, but I doubt that they would for a pre-med student.

    Disregard what everyone else said. I am the FBI. And let me tell you, I find your reprehensible behavior disgusting. And, your feeble attempt to "come clean" online is of no benefit, but it did make me laugh. I don’t like to laugh. Stop kidding yourself and look for a career in the porn industry, it’s the only avenue you have left.

    As for the rest of you, you will not be able to attend medical school either. Providing false hope to FBI targets is also morally wrong, and will be punished justly. Please provide me with your real names to make this whole process easier.

    -The FBI

    i think there are a number of schools who do this background check thing -- utah is one, once you are in. another, as i recall, is the university of washington, and they do it during the application process.

    that said, background checks are for illegal activity, not drunken spring break shenanagins. unless the school to which you are applying specifically say that applicants may not have ogled breasts or had too much corona during pre-medical years i think you are ok.
