It depends on the offense, but the consensus is that a C&F issue will affect your applications marginally, if at all. T14s can be more choosy, and are therefore more likely to factor in a disciplinary record, but as long as it's nothing serious (violent crime, academic dishonesty, etc), it shouldn't affect your cycle.

It depends on the offense, but the consensus is that a C&F issue will affect your applications marginally, if at all. T14s can be more choosy, and are therefore more likely to factor in a disciplinary record, but as long as it's nothing serious and you fully disclose (violent crime, academic dishonesty, etc), it shouldn't affect your cycle.

+1 with the bolded
