I have recently been accepted into SUNY Buffalo Dental School in NY and just completed my background check. In 2006 I got a DWI in NY but with help of my lawyer it was reduced to reckless driving. I did not know that reckless driving was misdemeanor and didn't know that the DWI charge would show up on my background check even though I was never found guilty, but it did. I talked to an admission clerk and she has told me that it might affect my attendence and advised me to send an apology letter. I just sent it explaining that it was my fault that I didn't mention it on my background check or on admission application. I would like to know how serious is this. If it is serious what could I do to stay in school. Thank you very much and I would really appreciate any advice.
