I was arrested as a freshman and convicted of disorderly conduct. The incident involved a verbal argument on campus at approximately noon with parking officials towing my car which was parked on the curb outside my dorm. After a few bike cops passed by, I calmed down and proceeded to return to my nearby dorm. Before entering my dorm, I loudly screamed some inappropriate language directed into the air. The cops immediately arrested me for the profanity. Has anyone personally been accepted or matriculated with a criminal record of any kind? Or otherwise, how do you think this will affect my chances if the situation and my growth and maturation in response to it are adequately addressed on the AMCAS, secondaries and in interviews?
