I received a class C misdemeanor minor in possession of alcohol as a 17 year old in high school. It will be expunged in 2-3 months. The schools I intend to apply to do not require me to disclose the charge if it has bee expunged. I cannot decide whether I should go ahead and apply now disclosing it and sending in an addendum with the app (and getting the app in for early decision with a couple schools) or waiting it out until the ticket has been expunged (and then barely making the normal deadline). I really need some help with this decision. Any advice is as always much appreciated.

Schools will not care that you had a beer on you when you were 17. Just explain this in your addendum and that you are in the process of expunging it. Waiting 3 months to apply could hurt you worse and leave you applying next cycle.
