I am a 43 year old premed student. One question I have is how will
a prior felony conviction play into the selection process? What types
of prior bad acts would eliminate my chance at either an med or osteopathic
school? What about licensing (esp. in Indiana)? If you need more info please
let me know? Thank You

I think that this is something you need to consult with an attorney over…and, you should also contact the state medical licensing board to ascertain if the particular felony conviction you are saddled with will affect your ability to obtain a license. I suspect the answer will vary greatly by state, nature of the conviction & the med schools themselves. You will need to have those questions answered prior to even starting to invest in the pre-med journey.
