I just dealt with this as well. I got written up for a bunch of things as a freshman and sophomore in the dorms (alcohol, girls in room, etc) and was put on "dorm probation" or something gay like that. I decided that since it happened several years ago and was so stupid that I did not need to disclose and sent off all of my applications.
Well, I got nervous that while I had been checking that I had not gotten in trouble the deans certs being sent in were telling the schools that I had. I called my school and checked with housing as well as with the dean. Apparently there was no record of me being in trouble. I was told that 1) after a few years they toss all the records of minor violations and that 2)at the time I was written up they were on a paper system and my infractions were not added to the new computer system.
My point: they may have no record of any misconduct. Call and find out before you disclose.
