HI,

I am a 43 year old premed student. One question I have is how will
a prior felony conviction play into the selection process? What types
of prior bad acts would eliminate my chance at either an med or osteopathic
school? What about licensing (esp. in Indiana)? If you need more info please
let me know? Thank You

umm...a felony would be a pretty big disadvantage...like a really big one.
". According to 2003 AMCAS data, of the 201 applicants who reported felony convictions, 199 were not admitted while two were accepted. " <http://www.aamc.org/newsroom/reporter/oct04/background.htm>
