I was 3.75 and 170 from NYU, got dinged by both Penn and Columbia RD, but it's often a crapshoot, especially since you're looking ED.

Your disciplinary issues will be fine. Somewhat embarrassingly, I have a fairly lengthy (i.e. longer than yours) disciplinary record, comprised of drinking infractions, and everything else that goes with that. While I can't say how much it affected my admissions, I'm currently a 2L at GULC, and writing this while on the Acella to an interview at a top 100 firm. Point is, it's a VERY common tale ... more people than you realize have college shenanigans on their resumes, and I know people who got in with drug write-ups or minor criminal infractions. As a rule of thumb, unless the school has reason to believe you won't make it past C&F, it won't affect you too much.

That said, disclose both. C&F boards hate cheeky word games; the worst thing you can do is play one on your addendum. The consequences when you make it to C&F (which, mind you, come after you've already gone through $200k+ of tuition) are far more severe than the minor (if any) ding to your transcript.

Hope this helps. Feel free to PM me if you want more info on my exploits or would like me to review your addendum.

Maybe the pumpkin stealing will help you. I feel like that's not what admissions officers usually see :P
