Please give me some feedback here people.
I am about to enter graduate school and the only thing that is against me within applying (since my gpa is above what they need, a professor and employer wrote a solid recommendation letter, and my personal essay was on point), was a petty theft first offense charge last year that will be cleared off my record coming spring. I am TERRIFIED that this is the one stupid mistake that is going to get me shooed away from the graduate program of my dreams and I need to know that maybe I will be okay. It wasn't drugs, or alcohol, or anything INSANE, but it was definitely something stupid that destroyed me as a person. Thoughts?
