I have a four year degree and am thinking about Vet Tech school. Is it even a possibility for someone like me with a DWI misdemeanor of a few months ago?

The best way to find out would be to call up your local vet tech program and ask. I know some schools will be wary of admitting a student with a substance abuse problem due to the availability of controlled substances in a vet clinic. If it was just a one-time case of poor judgement and you can prove it you may be ok.

Most schools and jobs require a background check before being accepted into the clinical part of the vet tech program.
