I’m wondering how long flunking out of university stays on ones records and how it might affect future admittance into graduate/doctoral programs.
Specifically, I’m 25 and starting school over. In the past, I flunked out of university twice :smack: at the ages of 18 and 20, due to very complex psychological reasons which I won’t go into. Since then I’ve grown up and discovered the passions I never knew I had.
Anyway, I’m starting a 2-year chemistry associate’s degree at community college. After that, I hope to transfer to 4-year university for physics.
Best case scenario, I would go on from there… hypothetically, I’m wondering if grad schools would look back into my previous failings (no matter how well I had done in university) and possibly not admit me into grad school. Would I be required to divulge the information, and would it still matter, if I had done consistently well after?
I get the sense there are lots of academic folk here. Please help!!
