If you have 2 misdemeanors on your record for bad checks for under $25 each, will you be able to still get license to practice pharmacy? I'm really nervous about this.

we're not legal advisers here, just students trying to get into pharmacy school. perhaps you should ask someone who's practicing in law or call the state board of pharmacy.

I wouldn't rule it out as a negative until you get a definite answer from the Board of Pharmacy in your state.

Since they are the ones that issue pharmacy licenses, they're the ones that you should contact.

Some schools won't even accept students with this record. Not sure if the time that elapsed since then matters. Chances are, you won't get any assertive information out of us here.

I've known pharmacists who got caught stealing scheduled pills or that were addicted to pain meds who lost their license and were able to get reinstated eventually. I'm not saying everyone that does this will get their license back, but just saying there's always a chance. I agree with everyone here, check with your state's pharmacy board and any schools you are applying to in order to find out their official stances on your situation.

I don't know about your misdemeanors, but in many states you cannot become a licensed pharmacist with a felony.
