Suggestions for roommate selection?

My D is an incoming freshman and is on the Emory Facebook page, where many are talking about trying to connect with potential roommates. She has filled out the brief roommate selection survey for Emory and was planning to just let them pair her up, since that seems to be part of the college experience. She heard though that there is a website (I don't recall the name) where you can fill out a much more detailed survey and connect with a potential roommate that way.

Advice?

    I was an incoming freshman last year, so I can explain my experience. So, one of my classmates created a facebook group for a roommate search. There was a template created that you had to answer so that you could find you're potential roomate. The questions were simple like favorite music, favorite tv shpws, do you smoke or drink, like to party, religion, etc. I was able to find my roommate because of that facebook group, and my roommate and I got along great. In fact, were going to be roommates next year.
