What kind of lottery is this?

So the lottery results are in for our seminar classes for next quarter. For the second quarter in a row, I have not lotteried into ANYTHING. How screwed up is that?

And I see that some people who lotteried into the ultra competitive Posner, J.'s class actually won a second seminar, too.


That means they got both their first and second choices.

Is it just me or does this system make ABSOLUTELY NO SENSE AT ALL??????????

Needless to say, I am pretty starring disgruntled.

(And a tiny part of me is screaming "Bring back E.Pitt! At least with his system I was able to get into a damn class!")

And even if you couldn't, he would go out of his way to help you.

It still pisses me off when I remember the asstastic way Levmore canned him. He's one of the meanest people on the planet.

I channeled a lot of my frustration into an angry letter to Bulgari.

It was quite cathartic.

It reminds me of the kind of lottery Shirley Jackson would write about

Sorry, but a registrar who did no work, kept all of our grades on a single excel sheet on his damn laptop (which, if lost before uploading to university server, would cause really big problems), never posted a finals schedule or class schedule until the last possible minute, and who was constantly drunk does not deserve any praise. He was a nice guy, but I'd rather have an intelligent, dilligent one in the registrar's office.

I agree that E.Pitt was incompetent.

Didn't mean to imply that he wasn't.

Whatever he was on, though, worked for my lotterying! :)

You didn't really want to do those long seminar reading assignments or write another big paper. You're a 3L, so I have three words for you: take home exams.

But I've heard take-homes are really brutal!

(I've never done a take-home before.)

Have I been misled???
