Defeat the System! Submit your GRS Numbers Now!

Some anonymous souls have decided to do the dirty work for us all and analyze this year’s GRS prospects. Data will be compiled, odds will be theorized, housing will be claimed.

Here’s the anonymous email:

“Wouldn’t GRS be easier if you knew exactly where your group is in relation to every other group? Please send your GRS number and group size to grsnumber[at]gmail[dot]com. Next week before Room Selection begins we will post a complete list of numbers and group sizes (no names!) so that everyone can be better informed. Spread the word.”

    GRS isn’t completely random, but it’s random enough to be highly unpredictable. Certain trends do hold for the most part, but the higher the rank number, the more changes are made before it. It’s better to be informed and to prioritize your choices rather than assume you’ll get something. Personal choices and increasing split/merge rates will rapidly change the playing field, but if you have your priorities in mind, you can choose the best option still available when it’s time to pick.

    Keep in mind the fact that the higher your rank, the more splits and merges are likely to occur before you go up to choose. Whatever odds you calculate right now(at least for middle to high numbered ranks) are going to change dramatically by the time you go up. Point: don’t assume anything right now about what you will or will not get. Rather than try and figure out what you’re going to get assigned prior to actually participating in a RANDOM, UNPREDICTABLE system, try to prioritize your options so you can see the best choice still available to you when it’s your time to pick.

    that’s stupid. make it names so that people can collaborate with those above them to figure out where they can live in relation to friends (and to bribe others to take worse rooms)

    Your GRS rank is, by definition of being a RANK, an indication of where you stand relative to the rest of the student body.

    What exactly are you trying to find out here?
