Just speculating... a serious incident of academic dishonesty, a violent crime, (maybe any felony?), stuff that would cause you to fail the bar (crimes of moral turpitude). An alcohol-related incident might do it if you have a history of them that you had convinced them that you'd overcome.

Lying on your application

The things that would get you fired from a regular job if you did it.

i said in the OP i wasnt asking about lying on your app


What are you asking about then? Instead of playing 20 questions just ask whether whatever you did is going to cause problems for you.

Are you planning on doing something that might give the adcomms pause? If not, the right answer is "just don't do anything stupid".

Ok, so instead of playing 20 questions just ask whether whatever you might do is going to cause problems for you.

Don't do anything that shows a serious lack of judgment.

Hope this helps.

Are you an alcoholic? Why would you think you would get a DUI, public intoxication, and/or into a bar fight between acceptance and enrollment? Maybe you should avoid alcohol for a little while.
