Yes. Conviction of a felony, being under indictment, being a fugitive, or being convicted of domestic violence are disqualifiers.

Is a misdemeanor considered a conviction?

A misdemeanor is the designation of the severity of the charge or judgment against you, not whether or not you are convicted. Misdemeanors are minor and felonies are major. You are charged with one, and then you either win or lose the case and only then, if you lose, is there a conviction. The conviction on a misdemeanor is not as serious as a conviction of a felony.

Can you join the army with a domestic assault misdemeanor charge?

A charge, or an actual conviction? If you have a past charge for which you were found not guilty, yes. If the charge is pending, or if you've actually been convicted, then no. Why? Well, in the case of a pending charge, you simply can't enlist with pending criminal charges. In the case of a conviction, what do you handle in the military? Firearms. And what, under federal law, are you not permitted to purchase, possess, or be granted access to with a felony conviction or with a domestic violence conviction, whether it be a misdemeanor or felony? Firearms.

Will drug testing be part of probation for larceny misdemeanor in Michigan?

Anyone placed on probation for any charge is restricted from consuming alcohol and/or illicit drugs.

Is being placed on probation still a felony conviction?

In most jurisdictions, yes. This is dependent on what you plead guilty to or are found guilty of. If the charge was amended down from a felony (say Trafficking in Controlled Substance) to a misdemeanor (say possession of marijuana) then it is not a felony conviction. However, if you plead guilty to felony charge with the stipulation of probation for sentencing (or are found guilty and placed on probation after a sentencing hearing) then you are a convicted felon. Generally speaking, it matters not the punishment for the crime you have committed but what you have been found guilty of or plead guilty to.
