Hi I am new to this board. I was accepted into the nursing program at Comm. College of Phila. and I have already taken all of the classes needed except for the 4 nursing classes which I was to start in Sept. I got all the required shots, CPR cert., checkup by my doc, dentist, child abuse screening and my criminal background. Well 2 years ago I had a drinking and driving arrest. However, on my paper it says "Driving under the influence of alcohol or controlled substance" Well it was just alcohol but they (school officials) don't know that. They are telling me that there is a good chance that I will not be admitted into the program because of this! I have worked so hard to get to this point - can they really do this to me for a misdemeanor? If anyone knows anything about the laws concerning this I would appreciate hearing from you. My classes are supposed to start in 2 weeks, I paid my tuition in cash, I bought all $500 worth of the books and I bought the ugly uniforms already! They are having a committee meeting tomorrow morning to decide on my fate, wish me luck!
