I did this and seem to have gotten a really nice girl. How many of you did potluck? I don't know anyone going into the program that I am (which has its own dorm), so I kind of had to...didn't really want to do the facebook thing either.
I'd rather have a roomie who shares my sleeping/studying habits than a good friend who doesn't. I'm obviously going to be a freshman, so any words of wisdom from the experienced?
