I know there are several threads like this but I think my situation is different from the others. I'm currently a college senior and have interviewed at several schools but have not gotten decisions yet. I recently received a ticket for intoxicated disorderly conduct for staggering on a sidewalk on the way home from a bar with one of my roommates for the possibility of causing harm to myself or another. It is a misdemeanor violation and I am eligible for the first offenders program. In this program you are not convicted of anything and they place you on 6 months probation. If you violate the probation then they actually convict you of the charge. How should I report this to the schools that I have applied to and how will this affect my chances of being accepted?
