From ages 14-17 I had 8 misdemeanors 2 petty theft 1 public intoxication 1 possession of marijuana Multiple probation violations

I eventually went to boarding school and completed the terms of my probation.

This was all over a decade ago Havenít had police contact since. Iím now 28 and a social worker working with the police department, board president of a local nonprofit, straight A college student, the list goes on. Iíve been told by a recruiter that my history displays a pattern of criminality and that I am non-waiverable.

Should I keep trying with a different recruiter? Or is my record too bad for a waiver?

I'm a recruiting supervisor. I've done lots of waivers that other recruiters said were impossible. Not knowing your exact offenses I can't tell you a good answer. The last 10 years make a waiver likely possible in my opinion, with the right recruiter. But, it depends.

Where the misdemeanors related? For example, I had a waiver once for a teenager that Tee-peed two neighboring houses. He was charged with a curfew violation, criminal mischief, vandalism x 2 (one for each house), trespassing x 2, and littering. 7 Offenses for a childhood prank. This could get a waiver.

If you shoplifted 8 times over 8 years, probably no waiver because of how hard headed you were in learning your lesson and the chances of you actually having shoplifted 28 times but just getting caught 8.

Not enough details here.
