Is there anything else perhaps I haven't thought of that might be an option for me?

yes
- but it is waste of time and money if based on the facts it is clear you don't qualify. You CAN clearly get the residence permit.

Additionally what I think you DO need is a better plan what you need after moving here.

Why are you so sure I don't qualify for a citizenship?

Well, based on the facts you provided...

You said that your parents weren't Finnish citizens at the time of your birth.
Every case is unique. You can't measure the result of your application based on arbitrary anecdotes online.

What if I have a criminal record? (not a serious crime, non-violent but a theft charge) will that hurt my chances of getting a residency?

Yes. It's in the application form.
Yes.... as in it would hurt my chances? Is that what you're saying?

I ma not going to try to hunt for relevant administrative court cases, but no, I don't think that will matter.
