How strict on credit/ Waiver ?
Ill try to make this very short and sweet and not leave anything important out.
My recruiter turns everything into a project and makes everything seem like the world is going to end.
Im going to join the army and want a job that requires a security clearance. Ive taken the asvab and scored 84 and 120+ on line scores so this leads me to these questions:
When I was 17 years old (6 years ago) my final charge was a misdemeanor: attempted battery and a judicial warning. I was initially charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon(knife)(felony), and battery(misdemeanor). There was no one harmed by the knife or by my fist.
1. Since the final charge was just attempted battery and I was a juvenile do you think I will need a waiver?
Everyone says that they have very strict guideline to get security clearance (not top secret just security clearance is what I want).
1. I pulled my credit and I owe Sprint $376 from 2002 and I have owed a credit card $1297 since 2004, outside of those two thing i have no other debt whatsoever (no car,home, etc.).
With not needing a waiver to join the army and that being my only debt, what is the likelyhood of me being able to get security clearance?
*If you dont think I can get a security clearance because of those debts. If I set up a payment plan with those two debts and bring proof with me of the agreement to repay those debts with me to MEPS.
2. Do you think having that promise to repay those debts will get me security clearance?
If you have any additional thoughts i would appreciate it. Thanks in advance.
