Hi everyone,

Im in the process of applying for the peace corps. I've put 2 years of thought into it and I am positive that it is something I want to do. The only problem is I was arrested about a year and a half ago for possession of marijuana. I got a Continue Without a Finding, which basicaly means I had to do 20+hr community service, pay a small fine, and not get in trouble for 6 months (all of which I did) and the case was dismissed. I've never been in any other kind of trouble at all, not even a speeding ticket and I no longer use marijuana or alcohol.

My question is, how bad will this effect my chances to get accepted into the peace corps?

Any help or input would be appreciated.


p.s.-I am planning to apply for june/08 when ill be done w/ college and by then I will have significant community service(not just that of my court order) and a bachelor's degree in Computer Science.
