Wow this is an interesting process isn't it. Does your child's college do it for you or is your child doing it via fb?

My daughter found hers via fb and has been texting the girl daily. She really likes her so far but they won't meet in person until June. We live on opposite coasts.

How is it going for your child?

Dd's school picked hers. Her roomate sucks. She never has talked to dd and now won't even look at dd or anyone else on the floor. She is a real bitch. She has zero friends at school. DD sleeps in her room but is in friends rooms all the time.

That does suck. What are her plans for next year? Does she know someone she can choose for a dorm mate?

My daughter's roommate will be assigned to her.  She does fill out a questionnaire to help with the matching process.

My dd filled one too. Got a terrible roommate. She said she was shy, played tennis, was neither a slob nor a neat freak. Didn't stay up super late. That was about it.

 You know, I never knew it was this involved to go to college somewhere.

DS number 1 filled out the app and the university selected the roommates they had no say. DD lived off campus from day one and chosse her house but not the roommates. First yr she was lucky all 5 got along great and she loved it. Yr 2 and 3 not so much yr 2 the girls were slobs and it drove her nuts. Yr 3 they were all snobby and after 4 months one of them still hadn't spoken too her.
