Suite Selection 2010 – Day 3: Lucky Juniors

Written by

Wheel of Housing

by JYH

30-point groups have finished so it’s time to house the luckiest of juniors.

The room count has two columns. “Whiteboard” holds official numbers on the Housing whiteboard and “Bwog Count” will be our estimate based on exit polls.

To watch our live updates on your mobile device, go to coveritlive.com/mobile and search for “Bwog”. To see the spreadsheet on a mobile device, head to bit.ly/bwoghousing2010-3.

See yesterday’s Suite Selection coverage here. Good luck!

  1. 33 rooms in Furnald?  

    Why do you guys have 33 doubles being available in Furnald? Last year only 7 were available to sophomores! I know that the Bwog Count column is unofficial, but you might as well as have a reasonable estimate there

    • just sayin  

      it seems to me bwog's still great for procrastinating sometimes but when it comes to things that actually matter (like housing) you need an actual source of info, the new spectator site/specblog thingy is where its' at.

      • Eliza  (Bwog Staff)  

        Sorry bout that! Just double-checked the answer with housing. There are 28 doubles in Furnald. That's because a bunch of rooms were added on the first floor, and those rooms are doubles. It's possible that a few doubles were also added to the second floor. Updating the chart now!

        • Furnald  

          has no singles available for rising sophs this year??

          • Eliza  (Bwog Staff)  

            Housing's double-checking that now.

          • Eliza  (Bwog Staff)  

            Confirmed number of doubles on the chart (28), for class of 2014 and 2013. There are 40-45 beds available for rising sophomores. Check the liveblog for updates.

          • wait...  

            If there are 28 doubles, doesn't that mean that there at least 56 beds?

          • Eliza  (Bwog Staff)  

            Housing's assumption is that most 2013ers will not pick into Furnald doubles, opting instead for singles. The 28-double count is for everyone, i.e 2013ers can pick into the Furnald doubles, but there will almost definitely be many of those doubles left over for the Class of 2014 to be placed into. Bottom line: there are no more than 45 spaces, period, for rising sophomores to choose into in Furnald. More updates on Furnald to come as sophomore housing draws nearer-- the juniors are only beginning. That's the most recent official word from housing on Furnald, though.

    What? No live-blogging love for Barnard? The Spec is live-blogging at Barnard...

    I can't believe no one is taking the Woodbridge G line, they're definitely some of the best rooms in the building. Highest end of the low demand. For sure.

    will furnald doubles be available for a blind double

    • Eliza  (Bwog Staff)  

      Blind doubles are only picked in general selection, so it will depend on how many doubles are left after suite selection/how housing re-assesses the Furnald double situation after suite selection taking into account space for the Class of 2014. Stay tuned! We're also hanging out in John Jay Lounge all day errday livebwogging, answering questions, and dancing, so feel free to drop by and look for someone with a Bwog badge on.

    Two more doubles from the new brownstone picked, two pairs taking up the whole 3rd floor for themselves. 7G Woodbridge also picked.

    There are only two rooms on every floor in the new brownstone. Hence, it's impossible to have three groups select rooms on the fourth floor, kids. Please check again.

    • Eliza  (Bwog Staff)  

      Yes, we updated immediately to indicate that they were taken on the 3rd floor, not the 4th floor. The group was confused- it can get hectic in that cage! So that's one double gone on the 4th floor and both doubles gone on the 3rd since lunch. Check the BwogCount for that update.

  8. barnard???  

    why aren't you guys covering Barnard housing?? Isn't barnard a part of the housing selection process for Columbia too?? Can you explain this Eliza?

    • Eliza  (Bwog Staff)  

      Hello hello! Basically, we've chosen not to cover Barnard housing in the past in this minute-by-minute way because Barnard Housing makes it much easier and much clearer for you to pick a room. They update their site pretty frequently and generally the process is much less stressful and more streamlined than the insanity that is this suite selection.
      That said, we see there's demand for updates here, and we're getting in touch with Barnard Housing officials now to check in. In the meantime, check this for a list of available rooms: http://roomselection.barnardreslife.org/available/, and do update us with any other specific questions before we get you a better update on that.
      Truth: it may take us a little longer than we'd like, because we have a pretty tiny staff doing all this stuff, but we hear ya and we'll be in touch soon.

  9. Question  

    Is that obscenely big first-floor River double taken yet?
