Dawg House Roommate Searching

<p>Hey! I'm using this to find a potential roommate and I was just wondering if any of you current students out there have used it. How successful were you in finding your roommate?</p>

<p>I'm using right now as well. I haven't had much luck mostly because of my dorm choices. Most of the guys want Russell, and I have the smaller dorms on my application.</p>

<p>Good luck to you.</p>

<p>I used it for finding people, but follow up with those finds on facebook/e-mail/aim. Don't just base your decision on that stuff because it's never entirely true. I found my roommate in a group on facebook. We went back and forth on facebook then IM'd for awhile and it turned out to be a really good fit. Make sure you match on sleep, partying, etc </p>

<p>Be honest and then just have mutual respect when you get there and it can work.</p>

<p>Please don't let the dorm choice limit your room mate selection....my son listed several dorm choices, and got NONE of them. He sent in his dorm request the day after ED came out last year. It's only for a year; who you live w/ is more important than where...especially when they may assign you some place you didn't even request.</p>

<p>So there's a chance that you wont get any of your choices? By March 2, I had applied for Russell, Creswell, and Brumby in that order, although I really REALLY dont want Brumby. Do I have a good chance of getting either of my first two choices?</p>

<p>Me and my roommate finished our applications sometime in February, put Russell on our list first, and got it. So I'd say you have a good shot. There's like a 1000 people here.</p>
