I am an incoming freshman next year at South Carolina and I have been accepted into the Capstone program. I want to room there because everyone says the dorm is so much nicer. Is it? But my problem is that I have a roommate in mind and he is not a Capstone scholar. He keeps telling me that he knows that people can room in Capstone as long as they have a Capstone roommate because he knows people that have done it. On the website it just says that priority is given to Capstone members and some Non-Capstone rooms may be available. Does anyone know if I will be able to room with him? Is it a common thing to have Non-Capstone roommates or a rare thing? I really want to room with him, but I don't want to jip myself out of Capstone if he can't. Will they move us to our second choice dorm or give me a random roommate? I know this year they are doing housing by date of application to school, and I applied in October so I think that helps. He didn't apply until later though. Anyone know anything?
