In my experience if you need to send actual documentation depends on the school. For most schools my addendum was fine, for about 1/3 of the schools (and I applied to like 25 or something) I had to send in a report from the local court of the state I had arrests in showing they had nothing on me and that my cases were satisfied (from like 10 years ago). I donít think I had to send the actual arrest report (but I might for the bar, so if you have it, keep it on file). For the one state far away I was able to send my dad plus a notarized letter saying he could retrieve my arrest records from the court, but I think you donít need to do that if you were over 18, should be public records that anyone there can pull for you. I will say I was glad I did get everything I needed before hand, because it took a few weeks, and for the schools that asked for it I was able to send a copy that day, so my file did not remain open and undecided for weeks while I got everything. So my advice would be get what you can now, even if you don't need it later so there is not a delay and the class gets filled up while they wait for your stuff.
