I was wondering how bad a citation for damage to property would hurt your application. It is not on my record, but they say to mention things like that because every midshipman must undergo a background check. I got my application and this is something that is troubling me. My application is very strong otherwise. 30 on ACT, 4.0, varsity letters, all-conference selection, cadet of the year, and superior cadet awards (x2).
