I'd imagine that if you're a felon, you'd have a fast-track in any MBA program.
I keed, I keed.
That said, I don't presume to know the laws, but I'd think you'd be better suited as part of a break-fix sort of shop. Never once in all my years was I ever asked about a criminal history or otherwise unsavory aspects of one's past. I have to support the suggestion of becoming a developer of some sort, since most of them are usually considered socially marginal, anyway.
