I have two misdemeanors when I was 20. One was for fighting and the other a drunk in public. I am know 24. I am currently in a FF Academy in CA. When I graduate I'll be 25. Since it is required to disclose them on your initial application, I'm concerned that I'll be weeded out before I can even take the written test. Is there any high ranking officials that have opinion regarding this situation.

What now?One was for fighting and the other a drunk in public.
I would be really concerned here by thinking packing on all the education and thinking time will erase the pattern you have shown here. How are you going to convince those doing the hiring that they should select you over the 100 other candidates with a more perfect record? If the agency is doing a psych it could quickly take the wheels off your wagon.
I see too many candidates that believed what you are saying here and remain badgeless.
