    I'm missing 1.5 fingers because of Meningitis, will this hurt my chances of becomming a doctor?

    Medical schools cannot reject you because of a physical handicap.
    Speak with ADComs.

    Best of luck to you.

    Man, your quote at the bottom was sooooo hilarious.

    Most D.O. schools have a 'technical standards' thing you need to review. A typical one is at http://www.dmu.edu/coms/technical.htm

    Check it out and see what's available. Best of luck, and keep your sense of humor.
