The LLC hopefuls heard this afternoon from Scott Helfrich, the Associate Director of Residential Programs. Those who like sprawling kitchens and want to emulate Jack Kerouac applied early to live in Hartley and Wallach, presenting recommendations from their RAs.

Those lucky enough to have been allotted their first choice now avoid the stress and uncertainty that accompanies the regular housing lottery. For everyone who did not receive good news, Bwog wishes you the best of luck when the regular room selection begins on March 1st.

Cutoff History now updated for 2009-10. Details after the jump.

To assess your chances, take a look at the Cutoff History for the last few years. This indicates the year [number 1] and lottery number / [number 2] of the last room of whichever type.

number 1:
30 = rising senior
20 = rising junior
10 = rising sophomore

number 2:
lottery numbers range from 1-3000, independent of number 1.

The order in which you pick is first determined by number 1, then by number 2.  For example, 30/1463 means that the last room of whatever type was taken by a senior with lottery number 1463.
