I will probably be flamed for this but i don't care.I just graduated college about a year ago.  I have two misdemeanors, where i lived in PHiladelphia, this drunk black guy tried to rob me with a gun, I pointed my gun at him and it was a standoff until someone called the police.  i got 2 years probabtion for each of hte misdemeanors and he got 10 years in jail. i just pass through 2 rounds of interview beating 20 people with mbas and more experience only to tell my OSJ about the misdemeanors and my chances were shot.  should i pay a sponsoring firm and get my licenses first?  i have the series 3 just to have it.any advice or help would be great.

Practice this for your next interview "Hello, welcome to McDonalds. Can I take your order?"

Why were you carrying a gun when that happened?

It never should have ended in a standoff.

Sounds like you left out part of the story.

I'd like to hear more of the story as well. You may have the required stones to make it in this biz. 
 
Palm Beach never, but south Philly selling annuites. X share of course. Maybe.

Tell them it is all about about a Cheese Steak from Pats. Towards your question, get your licenses if you have the chance. It can only help you inthe future.

Either you aren't telling us the whole story or you had a dumbass lawyer.Honestly you probably shouldn't bother to get your licenses.  With two misdemeanors it is going to be very difficult for you to get work in this business....unless you find just the right OSJ who will buy your story.  I'm just trying to speak the truth here....

judge dropped bail from 40,000 to 2000 (10%) cuz i had 200 dollars on me after i explained what happened.  I asked police at the time of arrest to breathelize the negro but they didn't care since i guess guns were in play...prosecutor was going to nail me with the two felonies but lawyer said i pulled gun in self defense and prosecutor agreed to drop them to misdemeanors.  negro wasn't so lucky tho like i said. my friend's mom is independent, and my friend agreed to ask her to sponsor me for testing.  I know FINRA asks for any SECURITIES RELATED misdemeanors and those aren't.  tho most companies ask for any... i'm considering just saying no and hoping that records aren't that complete so i can just keep that sh*t behind or under me....god, i hate chocolate... do times change...
