  • Misdemeanors and applying to Grad School

    Hello,

    I am a permanent resident of the US, 4 years ago i got 2 misdemeanors. The dispositions for these were nolle prosequi. Since then i've found out that means i don't have a criminal record but the arrests still remain, so if anyone does a criminal background check then that means it'll still come up. I am applying to Grads schools right now and i have checked the box on the application form that i was not convicted of a crime...however now i'm concerned that the university may do a criminal background check on me and i may be dicriminated against, in comparison to a candidate who has no arrests.

    Can anyone please tell me whether thay have any experince of having gotten arrested, no convictions made and they were still able to get into Grad school?

    Kind regards,
