Im asking this because I have dreads, I usually keep them neat and they aren't fat ones but the width of a pencil and I'm applying to medical school soon...
reason for having them: my sister grew them for me and eventually passed away so they're like a memorial type of hairstyle in remembrance of her.
what do you think?

To be honest I think it depends on where you will be attending and the demographic. I know that sounds shallow and superficial. I think in more liberal areas it would be OK, but more conservative areas might have an issue. It would also depend on the field. For instance ER doctors, I don't think most people would mind they are in need of urgent care. Some positions you might not be taken seriously. Personally I think that's awesome and would keep them. That's just my opinion though.1
