JLaur122 Posted September 17, 2011 Share Posted September 17, 2011 Hi, I was arrested for DUI last year and placed on probation. Per my lawyer, this will be on my record (DUI is NOT expungeable) as an arrest but not a conviction. However, I can do nothing to get the "arrest but no conviction" off of my permanent record. I am an excellent student and the last person on earth anyone would ever suspect of this (not that that matters on paper!). My question is simply this... do PA schools accept applicants w/ a DUI arrest on their record? I am not looking for judgement on my actions please, just an answer if you happen to know. My lawyer assured me he has defended many doctors, nurses, dentists, PTs etc. However, I don't know if they already had a license to practice. Also, can I be denied a seat for national board testing based on this? Has anyone had a similar experience? Thank you! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
