Hey General Selection, You’re Kinda Fucked!
Written by Bwog Staff
UPDATE: General selection appointments have been emailed out, so go fret!
UPDATE: Housing just released a list of of all currently available and already assigned rooms (UNI Required), broken down by building and type!
Housing just revealed that not all juniors will be able to pick into singles in General Selection this year. There are currently 1123 juniors and seniors registered for General Selection and only 987 singles available during General Selection. This means that up to 136 juniors (though more likely 100-120, since not all upperclassmen will pick) will have to pick into the worst blind doubles left over from Suite Selection. Housing stressed, however, that those juniors will be able to get singles through Summer Transfer. The brownstones the frats were kicked out of (approximately 50 beds), graduate housing (at least 60 beds, all near campus), and some Barnard housing (14 beds) will be available for juniors.
The luckiest 40 sophomores (with lottery numbers under 440) will be able to pick into Furnald. Another 20-30 will end up in terrible blind doubles, and the rest (approximately 200) will be put on the Sophomore Waitlist. Those on the list will be transferred into the blind doubles vacated by the juniors when they are transferred into the Brownstones or graduate housing over the summer.
You’re not so fucked actually. Housing assures us that everyone will be given the best housing possible, by seniority. Juniors in particular should not worry if they have to pick a blind double in the McBain shaft during General Selection; they will not be there when September rolls around. Housing also announced that they are hoping to have info sessions to assuage juniors’ fears, hopefully sometime late next week.
In related news, General Selection appointment times will be posted soon.
