So my college thinks they have a fair way of picking the type of dorm room you want with your roommates. The process is, each roommate is given a time and whoever has the earliest time picks the room. However not everybody is given a fair chance in picking the rooms available to them because some are already all picked by the time you can go into your selection. Mine and my roomate's problem is that we were looking to get a dorm room with more space and privacy. It has a kitchen because my roommate has certain dietary needs and prefers to make her own food. My reasoning is that I have some personal health issues and am uncomfortable sharing communal bathrooms and small spaces. Our current rooming situation is a traditional style but since there are other, better rooms available, we thought we'd try to get the one that suits our terms. We also do not want to buy meal plans but having a traditional style requires you to have a meal plan. We have already put in a request for room change, but it doesn't ask why you want it, so we have considered calling the school and my doctor to write a note. My question is do you think these are viable reasons to have our room changed over priority of someone else? Do you think the college would understand? Thanks for any answers!
