In the C&F section for some of the schools that I will be applying to, they say they want any suspension, expulsion, or disciplinary action disclosed from any school, including high school. I got suspended a few times in high school, but never for academic dishonesty or similar offenses. It was for being in fights and truancy. Will disclosing this hurt my chances of being admitted or the amount of scholarship I would get? My gpa is hovering at about the 75th and my lsat is a point or two above most medians. So far, I've only disclosed it to one school out west.

If a law schools requests all disciplinary action from high school, then disclose. It may hurt your or it may not, but if you don't disclose it could prevent you from being admitted to the bar. Truancy and fights don't look good, but write an addendum stating how you've grown as a person since then, and you might be able to mitigate it.
