Bad lottery number :(
based on looks or grades, or both.
i dont give a shit. I'm graduating bitches........
what's considered good/bad?
I would say above 1000 is good. Below 1600 or so is bad.
So 2800 is living-in-a-closet-with-friends bad. fun
So-bad-it's-good because you get to the top of the transfer list when/if you file a request.That's how I ended up with a private bathroom in Nussbaum as a sophomore two years ago.
2318, rising sophomore, and I'm doing General Selection
you probably won't even get to pick, they will run out of housing and you will wait in the transfer. its probably better than the top of the sophomore housing lottery. i had a number in the 300s in general selection and i ended up with a blind double in wien (no singles left), while there are many people i know with super low numbers who ended up in singles in "junior-targeted" housing. fucked up but you probably get the best end of the stick.next time there's some fucker talking about how our social life is hanging from a string and that's the biggest problem facing our campus, let's talk about how columbia doesn't have enough housing options to comfortably house a considerable fraction of our student body. the fear bwog cooks up isn't a trite fear - it is a legitimate fear of unacceptable living spaces that definitely play a role in one's academic performance at this institution (let alone the performance of one's well-being). most sophomores and many juniors will not be able to easily cook in a kitchen, yet they have few other options for accessing inexpensive and healthy food. our dining plan has a stigma attached to it for upperclassmen - and rightly so, it fucking sucks. so our student body is probably more malnourished than most others, and guess what, we're also the more depressed/stressed/manic/whatever. wonder how that happens. down with columbia housing and dining! or rather, up with it. this isn't something we should just accept. why isn't this front and center at student government meetings rather than the platitudinous shit you guys love to fuck aboutfuck yall
Come to us with complaints like these and, believe me, we will do every little thing we can to help you. Reach out, people. Please.
i just didif i don't go over to a CCSC meeting and address this formally, will you guys pretend this never happened? cause like, i know this is just a personal issue, no one else feels this way, its okay
Yeah, a lot of people just can't afford to live in Wein. Maybe if you get a renovated floor it's fine, but for all the Columbia happy-talk about how great the options are there was still no place for me to apply heat to rice.
how about Butler during finals week...
What could I do with an 1162 as a rising junior?
A hell of a lot. Broadway for sure if you're in general selection. Pretty sweet Watt options if you're a two person.
are you sure about this because on the cutoff history for broadway it says 20/682 for large singles and 20/340 for interior singles... how would 1162 get you into broadway then?
I had a lottery number around 1500 and had to choose a single on one of the middle floors of Schapiro. Broadway was long gone by that point. So, yes, I think Broadway is probably out of the picture for you.
1539, rising sophomore - am I doomed?
Nah, you'll be fine
Do I get to live in a shoebox with 2718???What's the best my group and I can do?
you might not get housing, for real.
last year, my roommate and I went in for a double (crossing our fingers to get watt) but we got lotto number 2769! But it all depends on what the upperclassmen ahead of you choose. We lucked out... a lot of people chose to live in woodbridge instead so we still got a double in watt that's super nice. and there are actually a good number of sophomores in the building! keep your fingers crossed, it will work out :)
FUCK HOUSING. I AM FUCKED OVER AGAIN
Someone tell me again why this system is set up such that I first get 2745 and then 2915? What fucking dipshits are in charge that let this happen?
If i wanted to hear whining i would go to a daycare.... but i really dont give a shit cause i got lotto number 22... with a group of all seniors..... and i have a big dick..... booyah
Is there a place where they have published everyone's lotto number along with their unis for all of us to see like they did last year?
they'll probably post it up soon
im in a group of 8, and drop down to general selection (b/c we have a very good lottery number), do we all get the same lottery number we got in the group?
if you're rising sophomroes, definitely, I'm sure. other classes too, probs.
That's what my group did this past year. We split up and then all chose to live on the same floor in schap, and we kept our number (and individual point values)
If you drop into general selection you all get the same lottery number and you decide amongst yourselves the order in which you pick rooms at your appointment time.Same goes for Sophomores doing pair-up: you get the same lottery number as your original group.
rising sophomore 2390 - what are my options?
I know a guy who has a friend who might let you sleep on his couch if you would be willing to whore yourself out. It'll take you a few weeks to adjust to the constantly swollen rectum, but it will still be a helluva lot better than where you are going
Based solely on our shared high 2300s, I feel like you're a really cool person, and I should invite you to go barhopping if you're a guy and ask you out if you're a girl. It's just crazy how the lottery plays with our emotions. I predict it won't be long before some savvy SEAS kid starts a dating site for people based on their lottery numbers.
I am so ready for the Legendaddy episode on Monday.
Suite selection? McBain, no shaft. General selection? McBain blind double or put on the summer waitlist, then end up with nicer housing than all of your friends.
Don't drop into General -- you won't get anything good and will end up picking into a blind double anyway. Your best bet is to do Sophomore pair-up and get what you can in McBain -- you might be able to avoid the shaft with a ~2300.
Hey, I'm curious... so wikicu says to watch out for Schapiro room 902.. does anyone know why?
Based on the floor plan its very oddly shaped, but other than that I don't see what's wrong with it.
I live in Shap 902 right now. It is an AMAZING room. I thought the shape was weird like an L shape, but in reality is really isn't. It's HUGE, I think meant for a double actually. Lots of sunlight too. I got it through summer transfer though.
rising senior in suite selection with 2 people, lotto number 1169. chances of watt? 2-bedroom apt in woodbridge? or are we basically going to be in 1-br woodbridge/EC flat?
Basically, you will have wonderful housing. Congratufuckinglations, senior.
Those usually go to numbers under 1000. I wouldn't trust the cutoff history for shit but they've been going at pretty low numbers. Prob a Woodbridge 2BR is a better bet.
Columbia Housing for ruining people's spring breaks faster than usual^^ You guys are the best!!
Lost the frat house, then my group of six drew 2980. Columbia clearly doesn't want me to live here.
LOL, the housing gods frown upon thee
Son! The royal hand of the man put some baby powder in it and then pimp smacked you real hard. No love from Housing.
hooray for special interest housing..
20/2000-ish: guaranteed schapiro at least? Housing cutoff says 10/xxxx but I know juniors in wien. Anyone know what's the deal?
I'm sure some people pick Wien over Schapiro. Bigger room, better views, living with friends, all of these could be considerations
sophomore waitlist is the deal.When I was a junior, Schapiro was gone somewhere around 1800 or so
Oh...fuck...that really blows. But thanks.
We used to actually pick numbers out of a "hat" (box) during housing lottery. I still have some of those rectangular slips of paper somewhere. Enjoy your robot overlord enforced misery, kids!
That's still how they do it for senior regroup. Only they don't pick numbers. They pick out suite configurations. And they don't shuffle them first. So make sure you add yours last.
columbia can't charge this much per year AND not give me housing thats livable. im not asking for anything special - just clean quiet renovated in like the last 202394023 years
20/2800ish; group of 8 rising juniors. where can we live??
Probably won't get Ruggles but you have an outside shot. Drop down and grab the dregs of singles in Wien, Harmony, and Schapiro
My group of 8 has a lotto number of 170. Is this good?
You won't get into Ruggles. But you can break up in sophomore pair-up and go almost anywhere else with good doubles (Nussbaum, Harmony, etc.)
You're in my group. Yes, it's awesome
you guys definitely won't get a ruggles suite... ever since they were renovated, they get taken up by lucky juniors. my group had 174 as rising sophomores and we had to breakup (sophomore pair up) and ended up getting great broadway facing doubles in mcbain. as long as you're with your friends and you're not in the shaft, mcbain is a blast! a word of advice after living there though, pick broadway facing rooms on the highest floor possible to avoid street noise. also, make sure to buy window screens from the housewares store (and encourage your neighbors too) and a fan and you're good to go!
highly possible that as a senior I will get worse housing than I did as a junior... OMFG THIS IS NOT HOW LIFE IS SUPPOSED TO WORK
That's not really possible. All seniors pick before the first junior does.
A group of 1 junior and 3 seniors the poster's junior year would pick before a group of 2 seniors and 1 junior his senior year, for example
but... group size is a factor as well
Lottery number as rising junior: 643Lottery number as rising senior: 2387.WHAT THE FUCK, COLUMBIA. WHAT THE FUCK.
You got lucky once. Better than some people get.
stop whining, you had a good number one year and a bad number the next. That is really not very remarkable
Tell us what our numbers mean. Please? Tanks.
Post that shit on here and surely someone will take pity and help you out (or not, and just mercilessly ridicule you. It happens.)
I'd take 600 as a junior and 2300 as a senior
Rising sophomore in with a suite group, I got 309. Is this good or bad?
not as good as my suite group. sucka
Depends on how many people you have. 6 or 8 -- not good enough for Ruggles probably, if you have only Sophomores. 2 (or if you break up in sophomore pair-up) -- you can probably get whatever you want in McBain, Shapiro, Harmony, etc. Probably not Furnald though.
that's pretty good, but not as good as rising senior with a 22
don´t pick into a watt studio single, whatever you do
Are these likely final numbers? I wouldn't put it past Columbia to dick around with us and put up new numbers come Monday.
that's what happened last year! with 2499, I'm really hoping that's the case.
if that is true....i will die.
that is, that these are not final numbers....I will be praying to god that they are final numbers.
I don't remember anything with numbers changing last year...so I don't know what the person implying that something like this happened last year is talking about. Maybe I was just oblivious to housing until the final numbers were posted
NOOO. I actually got an amazing number. I refuse to entertain this possibility.
2730 as rising senior. I just want a single in not-Wein. Can it happen? So confused.
absolutely! you're not asking for very much. unless that was a typo and you mean junior, then .. idk
Group of 2 rising sophomores, 10/240. Good?
fuck you man...that means yes, it's good.
Rising senior, 1224, general selection as an individual.What am I looking at?Also, is it weird for a senior to live in Schapiro?
it's weird. Live in Broadway instead.
live in Nussbaum or Harmony. they're nicer and less dorm-like.
can you get a single in a woodbridge apt from general selection?
What can a rising junior do with a 1603???
have they posted the list of everyone's unis and numbers?
Group of 6 rising juniors: about 2600 housing...ruggles please??!!
last year, as a rising sophomore, when my group picked during sophomore pair up there were still a ruggles 6 suite opensoooo it's possible
rising sophomore, got a 3 ... what does that mean???
As a rising junior with a number less than 450..which is the better choice, Broadway or Schapiro? I know almost all of you are going to say Broadway ..but I can't really tell the difference between the two.. Can anyone enlighten me?
broadway has a way better location than schapiro. it's like having all of the perks of living in carman...without having to live in carman again.
Better location and slightly better facilities. Not as much "shaft" (facing another building). Not really too much of a difference
schap. has better views, especially on the higher floors.
1415, rising sophomore in general selection. How screwed am I/ what's going to happen to me?
you can get an okay place in Schapiro
I don't know what kind of crack the person above me is smoking. If you're a rising sophomore in general selection you'll probably be stuck in a blind double. You might get lucky and get a tiny Harmony single.
2711 two people general selection... absolutely screwed?
btw, both are rising sophomores
205 rising senior general selection=good? I have paid almost no attention to housing this semester, have lived in SICs for three years. Can anyone point me in the right direction?
2600~ as rising sophomore suite selection :(is it possible to get a not-shafted mcbain double?damnnnnnnnnnnnnn columbia
two people btw
two people rising Sophomores. Fuck. What can we get? can we get mcbain?
HOGAN BITCHES!!! 610, all seniors. Haters gon' hate.
Is there a pdf with everyones lottery numbers like last year, so we can see where we stand?
sophomore pair-up will save your asses. you can get decent non-shaft doubles
did all the housing prices seriously go up by $1000? WTF.
yes. so not worth it to live in watt, hogan... those other 8500 dollar bad boys
1) Denial2) Anger3) Bargaining4) Depression5) Wein
rising senior, general selection, 1402, what can i get?
i've got 1132, general selection as an individual--what can i get folks?
question about the cutoffs on the website...someone said the 10/xxxx numbers for schapiro were sophomore transfers. since transfers go by point value then reverse lotto number, would it be safe to assume that if you were a junior, you were definitely able to transfer to schapiro (since sophomores did too)? or am i missing something else.
can somebody explain how summer transfer works for sophomores?
6 rising seniors 1935 -- what's the dill pickle// best 3 feasible options??
is 30/22 a good selection number? Will I get my first, second, or third option? Thanks for the replies.
are you seriously asking this question? yes you will!
For a 6 man of rising seniors, what is the best possible living option?
Nanananaanaaaa poo poo i got 22
I think I actually may have gotten the last number for my year. Blahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.
what are the chances of 4 rising seniors with 2700 getting an ec suite? or a suite in general?
rising sophmore in group of 7 with lotto number of 271... think we'll get ruggles? or maybe claremont?
Ruggles is 6 or 8
Remember that list of everyone's lottery numbers that was available last year? You know, the one where you could tell how many groups were ahead of you in the selection process?Where could I find that?
I'm also a rising junior with a lottery number of 2448 that is definitely ending up in general selection... Do I have a chance at Schapiro?? Will I end up in Wein??? ;_; Can I get a room that is better than 80 sq feet???
well i won the bet about me being #3000. XD
2700 lottery number, 8 rising juniors.... ruggles possible?
2 rising sophomores in suite selection with a single digit lottery number... could we each get broadway singles if we drop to general selection?
No, sorry... go into Furnald (if it's still open) fools
it says the cutoff last year was 10/679
What is the Watt Studio Single cutoff?!
Would anybody happen to know how many frats/sororities there are that take EC townhouses???and if so do they along with SICs usually take all single suites of 6?Just think that my group may be near the fence on getting an all-single suite and really depends right now on how many of the townhouses are taken...
Hahaah suckers... This is why I moved off-campus.
Rising junior, lotto number 869 (indiv general selection) - do you guys think I can get a bway single?
is furnald still available for rising sophomores
