Hello, I have a quick question regarding secondaries that ask if individuals have been convicted of a crime.
As with many users, I have a traffic violation that is an infraction. However, I decided to fight the ticket and go to court. I subsequently lost, and thus received a conviction, per public records. I have unfortunately already submitted most of my secondaries. For the question:
Have you ever been convicted of a crime?
Should I have clicked yes given the information above? If so, would this heavily influence my application, even after emailing schools?
