I am applying for a job and although on the application it says a background check is not required they ask you to disclose prior convictions or arrests in which you have plead guilty to. However, if it was expunged or sealed you do not have to report it. Approximately 2.5 years ago I was arrested for posession of marijuana and received court supervision. I completed my supervision which was 2 years long. Does this mean that my offense is sealed and that I do not have to report it? Also if a background check is not required should i still report it? Furthermore, I am going to be applying to med school soon, will this case affect my application? Would you reccomend having it expunged? Also, could someone explain the difference between having it expunged and sealed? I would greatly appreciate any advice.
