Just wanted to update that most schools consider this truly peripheral information, and only relevant towards comparing your law school application w/ your bar application.@ Vanderbilt the admissions secretary/person said explicitly that they didn't consider it in the review process.
Schools that ask for arrests I do not apply to. This is the USA being arrested is proof of nothing.
I'm sure there are tons of felons that law schools admit every year.

Maybe it has to do with the requirements of respective state bar associations? On my apps for Louisiana schools (LSU and Tulane, but curiously not Loyola), they want violations of ANY law, which I assumed to include traffic violations
