Students applying for college supply all sorts of information — financial records, letters of recommendation, the personal essay — to name just a few.
One big question they face: Do you have a criminal record?
The question appears on the Common Application — the website that prospective students use to apply to more than 500 schools across the U.S. and abroad.
Most students don't even think about it. But for some applicants, it's a reason not to apply.
