    I've already searched the threads for posts like this one: http://forums.studentdoctor.net/showthread.php?t=701165.
    But I want to know if a recent reckless driving misdemeanor for crossing double yellow line will dramatically hurt my chances at Case/VCU/Columbia?
    This happened two days ago. I'm applying next 2012 cycle.
    I'm stressing out when I don't want to be.

    It doesn't show up on any criminal background checks. I had the same issue a month or two before I applied last cycle and I didn't have any problems with it.

    just call the court or police department after it is all said and done. i had a drinking ticket 2 years ago and when i called they had zero record of it.

    this DOESNT show up in background checks. I remember i got one of these things for almost running over a police officer, but then some weird thing happened in court and it was dismissed. yay !

    You're still required to disclose it though, right? Both the aadsas and secondary application specifically asked about it.

    why would you disclose something that could potentially hurt your application that doesn't even exist?
