Hello everyone this is my first post,
My senior year of high school I received a reckless driving charge for going 81 in a 65 (very stupid) and was found guilty in court and was issued a $200 fine. I was 18 at the time and did not have the money for a lawyer. I live in Virginia and it is a class 1 misdemeanor. Fast forward, I am now a sophomore in community college with a 3.95 GPA going into my last semester. I also work full-time and have always taken a full course load in college with my work. I am also the president of the business club and an officer in the honor society.
I am finishing up applications and have disclosed my misdemeanor and explained the situation. I feel like as soon as the admissions office's see my application they will throw it out. I am hoping to transfer to UVA's business program where they only take about 30 transfers out of 200 applications every year.
Does anyone have any knowledge on my reckless's impact on my possible admissions?
