Recently I was issued a speeding ticket (10 mph over). Do I need to report it, even though I've been accepted/accepted scholarship/paid deposit?

Also, lol could this impact my acceptance/scholly status? I feel morbidly compelled to ask.

I would. Best case they laugh and say ok dude, worse case you get wrapped up in some C&F issue for not reporting. But I'm an OL

Report it just to be overly safe but no I guarantee you this won't hurt you.

This made me look up my old law school application, because I got a traffic ticket for going "9 miles +" over in 2008. On mine it asks "Have you ever been convicted of an offense other than a minor traffic violation?" I would certainly call this a minor traffic violation, so I'm sure it wouldn't affect you at all.

I guess it couldn't hurt to send an email to an admissions. They'll probably just delete it.
