Part II, Q3 of BU's character and fitness section reads: Other than a first conviction for any of the following crimes -- drunkenness, simple assault, speeding, minor traffic violations, affray, or disturbance of the peace -- have you been convicted of any misdemeanor within the past five years?

A few years back I was found guilty of two counts of "disorderly conduct," a first (and only) offense. I have no problem with disclosing it (I have to for most other schools, BU's seems really liberal about exceptions), but do you think this is excepted from disclosure? I mean, "disorderly conduct" is virtually the same thing as "distrubance of the peace" and "affray" is probably worse, but it's not explicitly listed and I wonder if I should still disclose it. I'd obviously rather not if I don't have to.

Thanks!


Was your offense in New Jersey??

Disclose. It is not explicitly listed. They're not going to care anyway, so risk aversion dictates that it is better to reveal.
