a. Number re-Randomization - should it be continued this year? vote: 10 for, 0 against, 1 abstain
b. Perhaps should limit the number of groups for dorms such as the social dorms to 12 or less
c. Must have more pre-lottery meetings as well as having careful information given out regarding the progress
