More useful GRS information

Rising seniors just received an e-mail from ResLife detailing the number of each size group formed and the number of living units available. Rising juniors in a 2-person group with a good pick, you may be in luck. Here are the facts:

Number of rising senior groups formed:

23 one-person
17 two-person
27 three-person
50 four-person
48 five-person
3 six-person

Number of mixed groups formed:

3 two-person (so 20 total)
1 three-person (28 total)
8 four-person (58 total)
6 five-person (54 total)

This is interesting. There are 47 four-person woodframes, so it looks like there may be a number of seniors in Lo-Rise, or that Fauver apartments may go like hotcakes. Also, there are 22 two-person houses and 30 three-person houses–more than the number of senior and mixed groups with that number of people. Looks like we could see a few juniors in woodframes.

Finally, that’s a LOT of one-person groups. There are two one-person houses (ResLife had previously said there would be none available in GRS) six one-person apartments (three in 128 Pearl and three in 240 Court); after that, it’s presumably on to 156 High, which has 22 singles.

If you have a group composed entirely of rising seniors, and everyone in your group attended a Community Standards Workshop, you have been entered in the lottery for the first pick. The e-mail from ResLife says the winners will have until “noon Monday, 4/22” to inform ResLife where they’ll be living; I’m assuming that should be noon on 4/20, since GRS begins on Tuesday.

And if you’re a group of any composition looking to merge, ResLife, like last year, is putting up a list of groups looking to merge. The form for adding your group–as well as, eventually, the list–can be found here.

    This is true. #1, you talk like you know what’s up but you clearly do not. Although I’m assuming a lot of these numbers don’t reflect the final situation (the 5 extra 2 person apartments will clearly be filled by merging seniors)

    #1, don’t be a douche. There are seniors in Lo-Rise this year, and have been in the past. There were also seniors in the Butts when I lived there last year. This might be a total shock to you, but some seniors don’t really give a shit whether or not they live in actual senior housing.

    Although Ben is right when he guesses that the low number of 5-person groups probably means 4-person groups will reconfigure and take Fauver apartments like hotcakes.

    #1: If you’re going to anonymously flame me, it helps to back up your comments with a name. And I will note that three or four apartments in Fauver (I had the exact number but threw it away) are filled entirely by current juniors, while there are a handful of seniors in 156 High.

    #2: Slim, but considering ResLife always shoots for 100% occupancy, it’s conceivable they could relax that rule if there are woodframes available after all the seniors have picked. I also heard that all of the one-person woodframes were occupied by juniors last year, so there may be precedent.

    And based on the numbers, it’s entirely possible that a mixed junior/senior group could end up in a woodframe. I’ll try to do a first-night live blog or something similar (I have pick #108, so I’ll be around for most of the night) and give people picking on the second night and beyond an idea of what to expect.

    Yeah and even if this happened, if you’re a group of 2 or 3 juniors, what’s the chance you went to the woodframe housing meeting things in the last two weeks? Doesn’t that make you ineligible anyway?

    you’re pretty stupid if you think that seniors would take a lorise or 156 high before they’d split and merge to fill up woodframes and fauver.

    this happens every year– no one knows who is forming what size group until numbers come out. but then people go to thier backup plans and work it out so all seniors get senior housing.

    don’t post dumb things like this that get juniors’ hopes way up.
