Unfortunately, freshman dorm assignments are pretty much a shot in the dark, I believe.
I'm not a fan of hall bathrooms either. I find public bathrooms awkward, for one.
I mean, I've dealt with communal showers and bathrooms before at summer camps and stuff, it's just the thought of dealing with it for a year or more makes me a little uncomfortable.
I'm especially worried because they always talk about how you need to be careful and make sure your feet don't get fungi and infections, which freaks me out because I have chronic dry skin and my toes sometimes crack open and bleed.
Open foot wounds + probability of foot fungi/infections = me very worried
Anyway, I guess I can deal as long as the people sharing the bathroom are respectful. I don't know how mature or immature any of the people on the floor will be though.
-sigh- The whole bathroom deal is one of the few things I'm worried about. Having to use public/communal bathrooms all the time seems awkward to me, especially as a girl. >< I value my privacy highly, and it's the one thing that's really iffy in college.
Lastly, there's the whole cleaning thing. All the colleges I've visited always say the communal bathrooms are cleaned really well, but...you know? How well is "really well"?
So, anyway, I guess we're in the same boat, huh? ><
