I wouldn't think so, but some more information would be helpful. Were you charged and given a pretrial diversionary program, were the charges never filed by the prosecutor, or were they dismissed at some point? At any rate, your best bet would be to call admissions at the schools to which you apply and ask.

This is a simple question. Answer all application questions fully and accurately. If the question asks "Have you ever been convicted?", well, then you just tell them about convictions. There's no reason to go disclosing stuff they don't ask for.

As future lawyers we all should really start reading exactly what it asks for

Haha, thank you. I'm actually pretty solid with reading comprehension (-1 in October), I just want to make sure when it comes to something like this. I didn't know if anyone had specific experience with this type of case.
