Really? I did not realize h.s. was even looked at, undergrad only.
Sorry for the third person, thought it was cute.....
I'm afraid if I email the law school they will put my name on the "do not admit at all costs list."
you don't have to disclose any identifying info in the email. i don't think they are, and for the most part they are extremely polite. besides, if they really wanted to track you down, they would just save your avatar pic.
I have come across exactly one school that has asked if I've ever been a party to a civil proceeding and I thought it caught me off guard. Haven't seen it again. I can't even remember what school it was. I think this will be more of a problem after law school than during the admissions cycle. You may want to answer the complaint and get yourself removed from the case for the future but I don't think it is something that will come up in your applications.
As for the tickets, there have been a few schools who ask for traffic violations that include speeding tickets (one asked for all, a few others had a minimum fine amount). Once again, it wont come up on all of your applications, but will need to be addressed before the bar (for example, if there were fines, were they all paid?).
Hope this helps.
