My daughter received an email from the college today stating that the college would allow Juniors to live outside of college housing. Apparently there are too many people wanting college housing. D insists that this is an overabundance of first year enrollees, because the college already knew how many upper class students it had and that they don't take transfers until they know how many first years they have. According to this line of reasoning the housing shortage indicates a greater than expected yield as that is the only unknown with which the college must deal. This may, at least partially, explain the waiting list that Calmom mentioned in an earlier thread.
