I have a felony and im am currently in school online for my associates im real estate studies, and i do believe it might depend on what your criminal history is. all you should have to do is go to a real estate company and find out if they do hire ones with a criminal back ground but as far as school goes you an go to college for that with a criminal history. and you know every job i have gotten that people say you cant do wih a back ground well let me tell you i was able to do nursing and child care with a history, of course i had to write a letter of when ,where, how and why and also took full responsiblity for my actions and they approved both of them. show them that and prove to them that you are a productive citizen in society and with time under your belt your past will not affect any positive thing you try to accomplish in your life!!! Take that chance and work your hardest and you will succeed!!!!!!!!!!!!!
