I am a 31 yr old engineer who is seriously considering going back to school for my MD. However, I fear there are a number of possible roadblocks and would appreciate any feedback.
I have a sordid past as a youngster. Several drug possession convictions (as a minor) and one marijuana conviction when I was 18. All of the convictions were misdemeanors. The other blemish is a DUI when I was 21. Also a misdemeanor.
Since then my record is spotless and I have cleaned up my act considerably.
So my questions are as follows:
- Given my record, is there any chance of being accepted to a medical school (in the US) or obtaining the required licensing to practice medicine?
- If number 1 is yes, do any medical schools accept Jr College to 4-yr transfer students? Or do most require all 4 years be completed at a university.
