9) Missing your room selection time.

8) Waiting until the last minute to form your group.

7) You have the wrong group size confirmed for the unit you are attempting to get. For example, you need 6 people in a group to select a 6 person apartment.

6) When attempting to get into the Flynntown Apartments, Placid-Maur, or Vincent Ct you have a rising sophomore (D1 or D2 cohort rating) in your group.

4) At least one group member has unconfirmed roommates.

3) At least one group member did not complete the Fall Housing Intent Form on time, if at all.
