@hopewhite25 if you are on financial aid, the grant aid will rise to cover the cost of the dorm. The students are placed into random housing, so you really do not have a say into which dorm you are placed into.
I'm a fan of the residential one-price lottery/seniority system because I see how that works well for a LAC trying to build a tight community of students. Less useful for a large U that is perhaps trying to build smaller communities of students within the larger institution.
I think grad housing is a completely different animal,
