I had two public intoxication charges in my freshman year of undergrad and got written up by my RA. They both happened on my dorm floor. First time I was yelling, second time I got sent to the hospital overnight. I disclosed both on my law school application, filed an amendment right as I started law school to disclose completely. Do you guys think these incidents are going to ruin me in C&F?

Dude. I've been arrested twice with no discernable record. You're fine. Also, learn how to hold your booze. You're a professional now.

Basically said. Yea I fd up. young dumb and full of...fun. Lesson learned. They were like ok young man no worries. Now you're credit on the other hand. And I go credit. I'm broke things happen. And they go it's okay honey. We got u. Don't send anything else in. You'll get through. It helps that I'm cute as hell and play aloof pretty well. Had a heart attack for 3 yrs worrying then it was done deal in matter of one convo. Worry not.

But really, as long as you disclose it, there's nothing to worry about

Disclose fully. Show humility, contrition and that you learned from it. Do this and you'll be FINE. People get admitted with much worse. The only way to screw this up is to not fully disclose it.
