I never thought I'd have to talk about this, but... my very first semester of college I got busted for underage drinking, and had to meet with the Dean of the school and take alcohol classes and pay a fine.... But I mean, I'm 31 now, and that was 13 years ago! In fact I almost forgot about it completely... Do I really have to discuss this on my app? I can't imagine that would look good

I don't think it affected admissions at all because I got an email offering me a "Preliminary Admissions Offer" which detailed the financial package and it said that the only reason the offer wasn't official was because of this "flag" I had marked. To get the flag off, I had to fill out this form and send it in. I can't imagine that any of these minor incidents would matter to them and make them rescind your admissions, so if you don't mind the hassle of faxing in the form, it's probably fine to answer yes to the question.
That PDF from UF wrote:You may be required to finish the university with copies of all official documentation explaining the final disposition of the proceedings.
