It's not that I mind disclosing the traffic violations, it's just that I would rather not show them past judgement errors if it isn't required. I have plenty of time to consider it and gather information, so I'm not too concerned.
well, my approach when i was applying was just simply "is this a violation the school is actually looking for when they ask for the disclosure based on the way the disclosure request was written?"...
don't worry about disclosing it...a speeding ticket, imo, is hardly a major judgment error...yes, you may have other things in your past that make you questionable, but i don't think a speeding ticket will make it worse...i mean, doctors, lawyers and judges get speeding tickets...i understand the notion of not wanting to show past judgment errors, but if the school's asking for it and you choose not to disclose, this rather minor past judgment error just became a present judgment error...if they find out, however unlikely, you won't be seen as "he's learned his lesson" you'll be seen as "he hasn't learned a thing and is still trying to cover his ass"
