Hey everyone, I came across this site a few days ago and it is actually quite helpful. However, I haven't found many threads regarding the effect of a criminal record on your application to the Naval Academy. Currently, I'm a Freshmen in high school and like most of you, I have planned on going to the Naval Academy almost my whole life. Though I am young, I am in advanced classes as it is, and I believe I have a good shot in getting into the Academy. Unfortunately, last summer, I was caught going into this abandoned house in my town and I was charged with Criminal Trespass and Criminal Mischief. The good news is that these convictions are not yet on my record, because I haven't went to court for them yet. My question is If I am proven guilty, and these charges are on my record, will this effect my chances on getting in? AND, If this will effect my chances on getting in, by how much? I appreciate all answers. Thank you.
