My University House lottery number: 52
So that means that if I want this dorm next semester, without having to go back into the pool of every student on campus, I've got good odds (low numbers are good) that I'll be able to get one of the 11 "Res College" suites- the ones assigned to the rescollege for their own housing round in which people who want to stay here next year can try before the main housing shuffle. I was planning to anyway, and 52 is a good number; Joe and I will be on one petition together (we've been good neighbors to each other), but we're not sure who the other two will be. Todd (the RCD) doesn't expect many people anyway- most want a dorm where suites actually get common rooms, at the expense of individual room space- so the lottery number may be pretty much moot anyway. 11 suites = 44 people, by the way.
Now if I went back into the pool...
Worst possible General ResLife lottery number: 4296
My ResCollege lottery number: 4296
