I Just Recently Got My Second DWI in Texas, Can I Still Go to Grad School??

Question by DateDr: I just recently got my second DWI in texas, Can i still go to Grad School??
I got one in Dallas County and one in Bexar County…..i am a full time student and i am also under 21,i want to go to either dental school or Med school i was wondering, how hard is it going to be for me to get in…and also if any one is also going thru the same thing please give me some advice…on extra things that they might have to do or just basically overall what i need to do and focus on??? I would greatly appreciate it, if sumone could throw some advice my way
Also for my benefit i moved back hom with my parents,whom do not drink and can keep an eye on me…with that being said where i use to go to school i had a very good gpa 3.6
Another thing i want to add is….im a typical college student..yes i should have stayed away from alcohol after the first one….i agree totally….but i didnt…and that doesnt make me a alcoholic…..most students do what i do but just have not gotten caught yet…and i feel that is the only diffrence that there is between me and a normal college student..I got my work done…and then i did whatever i wanted to…i never slacked always went to school was in and still is in different organizations…did tons of community service….so for me i do not think i am an alcoholic….i do not think about it all the time and i do not need it really…i just drank it because i enjoyed a drink every now and then
and also from a financial standpoint i am fine……i have no worrys about that…the only thing going around in my mind is of the fact if i can get in or not..any extra coursework or classes is fine with me i have to deal with the consequences

My heartfelt advice is to go to AA. I wish you luck. As to what to focus on? Not drinking and driving.

As to grad school, they may hold it against you, I really don’t know. Just don’t try to hide it from them. If you get help (such as AA) then you can show you are trying to deal with your problems and they may not hold it against you.
