Too many IAs? Does time matter?

    The 20-year-old you was clearly not mature enough for med school; if you had applied right out of college, those IAs would be an issue. Now that you're in your 30s? Well, you're long past being old enough to possess alcohol, and my reaction is to laugh about that prank call rather than to hold it against you.

    As I told the other user who was asking if a past record would come back to bite her, time is your friend. A stupid prank like this can elicit a shrug or even seem funny because it's something you did 10+ years ago when you were a dumb college kid. It wouldn't be funny though if you had tried to apply to med school while you were still that same dumb college kid.

    Time heals all wounds, and ten years is plenty of time to show that the you of then is NOT the you of now. You'll be fine as an applicant.
