The Shaft

Lottery numbers are glitchy, and there's a group of 19

We interrupt our regularly scheduled programming lottery number analysis to let everyone know that the lottery numbers released included several glitches. The algorithm Housing used to generate groups' lottery numbers assigned multiple groups the same number, which is why there are groups larger than the max of 8 (there's even a group of 19!).

Housing has emailed these groups to let them know that their choices won't be affected because groups assigned the same number are of different sizes and thus are looking at different options. However, we're still trying to give you the most accurate predictions and advice, which is a bit complicated by the possibility that any group larger than 3 could be a combination of smaller ones.

So here's where we need your help: If you are a member of a group that was assigned the same lottery number as another group, email us at shaft@columbiaspectator.com to let us know your point value, lottery number, and actual group size. The more people who let us know that their group of 6 is actually a combination of a 4 and a 2 (for example), the sooner we can give you analysis, and the more accurate our predictions will be.

If you check out the full PDF, you can find your group on the list and see if there are others with the same number.

An excerpt from an email from Kristina Hernandez on behalf of Joyce Jackson is below:

A small number of Room Selection participants were assigned identical lottery numbers and thus will have the same appointment time as another group. This is the reason some groups appear to have more than 8 members.

We have already notified students with duplicate appointment times and provided a solution. Following an analysis of affected groups, we do not believe that this duplication should negatively affect any of the groups’ housing choices.

Please continue to stay tuned for full lottery analysis, and thank you in advance for your help!

What kind of analysis are you asking for? There's no way to make detailed predictions if we don't even know how many of each group there are.
