I was hoping someone could advise me on my present situation. I am in the process of applying and am in a dilemma. About a year ago I made a stupid mistake. I was with a friend and Im not sure or have a hard time recalling the exact sequence of events, but one thing led to another and we ended up fighting . My friend and decided not to press charges however someone called the police and the incident ended up on my record. I wasnt convicted of any crime yet I have to wait a year to get it off my record. I wondering is this going to effect my future. If I apply and match will this issue come up (if my record hasnt been cleared of the incident at the time I match). If so, should I wait out a year and reapply . Or should I take a chance this year and basically tell my story and hope the pd / committees understand my situation . Also if I apply this year and match, and am latter terminated would this jeapordise my chances for applying next year. I would really appreciate any comments, suggestions, advise .
