Law School Admissions / Character and Fitness

I know it's been asked 1000 times, but I'm wondering if anyone has any input regarding the affect of a simple alcohol write-up in law school admissions.

Freshman year I was written up and put on disciplinary probation for a month for being "in the presence of alcohol" in a dorm. No further citations or problems, strong student with strong credentials at a top 25 undergraduate university. I've even taken classes at a top 25 law school (and received A's) as an undergrad taking part in a special program.

I plan to briefly disclose the violation (it was dumb, I learned from it, blah blah blah...) even though my university doesn't deem the offense "reportable." I figure it is better to be safe than sorry.

However, does anyone know how much (if any) affect this will have on applications to schools like UCLA, USC, BU, BC, Loyola, Pepperdine, etc? Will they look favorably on candor? Any input is much appreciated. Thank you!!!
