Underage drinking is a crime - its a misdemeanor, but I'd mark no anyway. It's your only chance. Like they're going to check. It's also your only chance of getting any consideration.

I think they mean major crime. Don't think underage drinking will show up on your background report, but I'm not an attorney. Anyway, I'd check no because A: it's not a serious crime and B: you'll never get the job the second you check "yes" they won't care what your explanation is. answering yes equals not hired.
