    Hahah, I used to be obsessed with Pokemon. I went with my best friend to buy some cards and when he opened his he got a Charizard. I was bummed out that I didn't have one. Then I opened my pack only to find a Charizard :D

    Pokemon? Are you guys for real? I babysat for some kids that were into Pokemon. Maybe I am getting old, too. I was more of the Garbage Pail Kids generation, which in all honesty was probably worse.

    Well it can go both ways, you were either too old to know what pokemon was, or too young....lol... I personally remember them and have no idea what garbage pail kids are...i'm goingg to venture out and say pokemon were coller, pokemon even had their own pogs if i'm not mistaken...lol

    getting back the main question of the post...
    i heard some kid got in med school with a felony on his record from my prehealth advisor
    are there such stories in dental school where someone was convicted of something or academic dishonesty on their record?
    just curious
     
  21. even video game clothings tv show notebooks, etc

    IU, UNLV, & UMDNJ will most likely accept you:eek:

    Ohhh yeah pal, UNLV School of Dental Medicine is FILLED with criminals. Must explain why all the dental students there had to wear orange prison suits and had a parole officer following them around. Get real.

    P.S. you are wrong. UNLV asks if you have had anything other than a minor traffic violation (i.e. minor speeding ticket, parking violation) on their secondary.

    Seriously, it seems common for a college kid to get a MIP or PI. Does that hurt your application that badly? I hear they are more concerned with sex offenders, as we will have patient contact in the near future.

    Is a misdemeanor even an arrest? Personally I would consider it to be more similar to a parking ticket and wouldn't disclose it.

    Be sure to know the schools policy though otherwise this can come back and bite you. There are schools that upon acceptance do a background check and if they see something you should have reported but didn't... they'll give you the boot
