I am starting college this fall and I plan on majoring for Petroleum Engineering. Now the problem is I have a felony conviction of "Harassment of a Public Servant". I also have a few misdemeanors like false police report, Public intoxication (x2), possession marijuana, and that's it. I see that with my felony conviction is restricts me from many different jobs in the world. I am from Houston, Texas currently living in Michigan at the moment, but will be back in Houston to start college. I was wondering if anyone had any advice for me? Is this field something I could get into with a felony conviction? Also what have yall heard about Mechanical Engineering and getting into that? I figured I rather ask a forum where people are actual petroleum engineers and not some guy who thinks he knows what he's talking about. Thank you in advanced.
