Purely hypothetical question btw

So for spring break, I'm probably going to Cancun with my boys to celebrate our last year together before we begin the rest of our lives. I told them straight up that I don't want to do anything illegal or dangerous. But you know how we are, and you can expect at least one person to do something patently ******ed, and possibly get themselves arrested or killed. Oh well, you only live once.

Anyways, I'm going to go ahead and assume that dead people cannot matriculate to medical school.

So I wanted to ask, if you get arrested and tried for a misdemeanor offense, can a medical school rescind your acceptance? I'm talking about stuff like soliciting a prostitute, possession of illegal substances, drunk and disorderly, driving under influence of intoxicants, etc.

Meh, you're in another country. Nothing to worry about.

semi-srs

Would the answer change if it were a vacation in the US?

Also, if I got into trouble abroad, wouldn't the US Embassy be involved?

In the US, you wouldn't need to report an arrest, but you would need to report any conviction.

Abroad, the embassy may be involved, but it still isn't a US criminal record.

You should be more concerned with getting locked up in a Mexican prison.

Hahaha true this.

I would be more worried about actually getting arrested down south though. I knew a guy that got locked up in Mexico for a little over 6 months. He didn't come back the same....

Edit- MedPR beat me to it!

Highly doubt they (the police) will care about any of these things in Cancun. Just don't commit any real crimes and you'll be fine.

...medical schools can rescind your acceptance for whatever reason they want. It's not a legally binding contract that you can take them to court over. They wouldn't rescind your acceptance for no reason, but if they got wind of you doing anything you just mentioned, they'd have more than enough to rescind and fend off any lawsuits you might try to bring up.

I suppose your question is whether they would find out. Any crimes committed abroad could show up on an international background check. Medical schools don't usually run checks at that level (no reason as half+ of acceptees may not have been abroad) - but if something happened and you got booked, it could pop up eventually.

And of course if you get thrown in jail down there, game over.

You have a lot more to worry about than one spring break if this is honestly the way you think. You can have fun and still get really drunk and party. Exercise a little self-control or learn to handle your **** (sorry) a little better before you go on a trip to Cancun.

I can't wait until we're all out of college and (most) men and women quit acting like this. Seriously, soliciting a prostitute?

Anyways, if you're going to go, don't do anything that'll give med schools a reason to reject you. Getting arrested is the same as handing them a piece of paper saying "I don't deserve to be here, take my acceptance." I don't know how that'll translate if you're outside of the US while getting arrested. But if anything shows up on any of your records, if med schools don't ask about it, it'll definitely rear its ugly head when you try to get licensed.

TIL the majority of people who get prostitutes are college kids..

Yes, we were getting along. Then you posted something that makes you seem like a real tool. You might be a nice guy, but I can't defend this kind of crap.

I said in the OP that I don't want to do any of the stuff my friends are doing. I have never drank, smoked, or had sex. I don't like to break the law either.

But one night in Cancun can turn even a righteous man to sin. That's what I'm worried about.

Even though I spent four years being a foreveralone, never being invited to a party, never even holding hands with a girl, never spending a night having fun with the guys...

Maybe if you quit acting like a 12 year old, you'd get attention from a real person and wouldn't have to worry about soliciting prostitutes.

Let's keep the virgin-shaming to a minimum, okay? This thread was supposed to be about medical school and the law.

If I was on an AdCom, I would see this as a HUGE red flag. I wouldn't take any chances, if I were you, considering your entire future career could potentially be at stake.

Yeah, I was talking this over with my friend, and we were thinking the same thing.

It would probably be better just to take a domestic vacation and go to a few drunken parties.

Ive been abroad many times and It's seriously not that hard to go out and have fun and not get arrested.

You're not doing it right then

Oh yeah, nothing says a good time like supporting ruthless drug cartels who slaughter thousands of people.. or perhaps even supporting human sex trafficking! At the very least, exploiting desperate women who sell themselves into prostitution... where do I sign up lol

Edit: I forgot the necessary ending to these types of things..

"Where do I sign up brahhhh"

you don't have to go abroad to support all those things. Here in the US of A we do it all the time...not me, but many do...just saying

I totally agree. The difference is that if we supported that here and were caught it would destroy our future. The OP was seeing if he could support It in Mexico, and if he was caught could he get off Scott free.

If I were OP, I'd make the trip. Everyone on here talks constantly of him gaining some perspective and experience - Cancun would be a hell of one. Check off all those "stereotypical college experience" boxes in one go. You don't even have to break the law to do most of them. Bro.

Well, I've been talking to my buddies, most of whom lived the stereotypical fratboy college experience, and we'll definitely be going on a spring break trip, though maybe not to Cancun. Still, expect a lot of drinking, drugs, parties, and house music. :)

My parents are fine with it too, though I left out some key details that may have changed their mind.
