I am a ROTC scholarship/Academy hopefull, and I recieved a speeding ticket a few months ago. It was not reckless or anything like that, just a ticket. I am currently trying to get it deffered. If I do not get it deffered, will it hurt my chances at the Marine NROTC scholarship or any other ROTC scholarships? Anyone who can tell me about it affecting each specific, different scholarship (Marine NROTC, NROTC, AROTC, AFROTC) would be greatly appreciated. Also how much does it hurt me if I get the ticket taken off my record? I am worried because I read that one cannot have a civil charge and apply for the Marine NROTC scholarship, so I am scarred that this will either hurt my chances or put me out of the picture completely.
