Please those who have experience with this subject enlighten me. I tryed posting this yesterday but some mod. moved it to god knows where for no reason and I have a big hunch who this mod is that terrorizes my posts and most other useful posts.

Anyhow in short, I went to a carb med school in 2003, left due to illness (anxiety) only 2 weeks into the program, left on good terms. school goes mostly on private loans, my credit isnt that great and getting credit is hard and now that i experienced what i did then i rather go to a US DO/MD school. My question is, if I want to apply MD/DO, do I have to mention my attendence on my application, if I dont will they find out. Will it kill my chances if I did attend. I have very very limited funds and if I retake the MCAT and apply it will be purely on loans so I dont want to take this risk unless I got an idea if I got some chance with this circumstance in US MD/DO schools.

God Bless and happy holidays.
