Will a DWI charge ruin my chance at graduate school?

Looking into your rearview mirror and seeing the flashing red lights of a police officer can make your heart sink. The drawn out process of getting arrested for a DWI will give you plenty of time to consider how this night can affect the rest of your life. Graduate school is an essential step in many young adult's careers and one night's mistake shouldn't have to ruin your future. Unfortunately a DWI can follow you around for a long time so it is important to understand the repercussions and how to better your chances at getting into the graduate school you were looking forward to. The North Carolina justice system does not take DWI's lightly. If you are under 21 then any amount of alcohol in your system while operating a vehicle can result in a DWI. You can get your license suspended for a period of 30 days and then 1 year thereafter. If you are older than 21 then you can get your license suspended for up to a year for the first offense.
