The Process
Within each cluster, each pick group is assigned a random number. Rising seniors have the lowest numbers, followed by rising juniors, with rising sophomores at the end of the pick. Groups with students of different classes have numbers at the beginning or end of the appropriate year groups.
Each cluster's room draw is separate. The seniors with pick #1 in each cluster pick first, then pick #2, etc. until everyone in the cluster has picked. There are about 100 picks in each cluster, ranging from [[Dodd Cluster|Dodd]] around 80 and to [[Spencer Cluster|Spencer]] around 120 in 2007. You are not allowed to pick into a double by yourself until the very end of the room draw. Thus, people with the last picks sometimes end up being the only person living in a double, which is a sweet deal. However, you are likely to end up being assigned a roommate after the end-of-summer room draw, or to have someone live with you when they come back from abroad. The group with the very last pick gets T-shirts.
