Law School Admissions / Re: Disclosure of Criminal Record

way too much information.  Should be three short bullets.

Yes, but if I don't include all of the details that I know about, couldn't they possibly say later that I didn't disclose details and therefore am disqualified from the bar because I do not meet the ethical character and fitness requirements?  That is, I knew more details about the reported incidents and witheld that information? 

I guess it depends on the specific wording of the particular app.  Let's say for argument sake that the application asks "Have you ever been charged with or convicted of a crime or a juvenile offense, or are criminal charges pending?"  Obviously if the question doesn't specifically ask if I was charged, I wouldn't disclose any of the details about the dismissed Felony charge.

Hello,  Could somebody please read my disclosure below and comment on it.  Will this disclosure have an adverse effect on my chances of admittance?  If so, how bad will it be?  I'm thinking about making my PS focus on how much I've matured over the past six years and learned from my mistakes.  Is that too obvious?  Any serious advice would be greatly appreciated.  In case you're interested I have a 2.98GPA and a 160LSAT.
