Chances of getting in the cia?
I am very analytic. I am studying chemical engineering. I will graduate with around a 3.1-3.2 GPA in this degree which is considered pretty solid. I fit all of the requirements except for the drug part. In my first year of college I smoked weed quite a few times and did coke a couple times. It hurt my grades and I didn't feel good smoking so I quit. I plan on applying after I build my resume more after my first job so around when I'm 26 or 27. I am very loyal to the USA and have always wanted to serve it at one point in the military. Please tell me if my experimental drug use would cause me to lose this once in a lifetime opportunity or not.
