if you are stupid enough to get behind the wheel when you've had too much to drink, then i hope you rejected everywhere. you endagered the lives of countless people. don't play this off as some childish mistake that you fixed when you matured-it happened when you were 21! i can't believe you have the balls to even say you did this and wonder why iowa does background checks-i am grateful that schools like iowa are checking up on losers like yourself. i have known people who have been severely injured by drunk drivers, so don't try to get any sympathy over here. are you suprised some schools want to do background checks? you are obviously not mature enough to drive a car,dingus, so why the hell do you think you're mature enough to be a doctor. i still can't get over the fact that you want to know why iowa does background checks,and not how you can prove to them you've changed-which, obviously didn't happen. you can go drink all you want, i don't care, but once you get behind the wheel you're a threat to the very people you aim to treat later in your life. if this forum were like survivor, i'd vote you off.
