for those who had to disclose criminal record info

How were you able to obtain your exact charge for the section on the application that asks for what law you may have broken? Or did you just give a general description?

If you are struggling to figure this out, you may be choosing the wrong profession. Just a thought.

I'm sure that a colloquial reference to the offense will be an acceptable description. Of course, if you killed someone, for example, don't say "I popped a cap in a homie's ass." Go with "I intentionally utilized a civilian grade firearm against another person, resulting in their death." Best of luck!
