You also have to provide them your entire work history since you were 18 in most states. You also have to report everywhere you've lived. You also have to report financial debts and obligations. Sure, maybe if you're a K-JD who lived with mom and dad and never had a job or a credit card, you'll have an easy time with C&F, but for most people you're going to have to report more info than you might be comfortable with.
We were speaking specifically about criminal matters. Examining your credit, work, and residence history for evidence of responsible behavior is understandable. I'm saying specifically that criminal matters that have been dismissed by a court should be exempt from examination. If the court vindicated you, it should be over with, state bar or otherwise.
