As a high schooler I used marijuana an average of once a month with friends, experimented with adderal a handful of times (about 10), and used nicotine heavily for about a year as I was addicted (through a vape; I’ve never touched a cigarette). However I no longer use any of these substances and certainly don’t plan to in the future. Despite this I was able to maintain very good grades in consistently high level courses and had many extracurriculars (300+ community service hours and multiple internships). I am also an athlete and was a above average player in football, lacrosse and track. I believe that I am qualified for the USNA, USAFA, USMA, and other selective colleges because of my grades and extracurriculars and would hate for this to disqualify me. How will these things effect my application to these colleges? As well I know this isn’t the right forum for this but if anyone knows how this would effect me if I wanted to work for a government program like the FBI or CIA since I know they ask about this on the polygraph. I would be very dissapointed to hear that because of things I did as a teenager I am disqualified to attend these universities or be employed with the FBI, CIA, NSA, etc. Thank you in advance!
