It’s a plan

The plan for the first round of registration has been announced a piece at a time, but just in case you missed a piece of information or two, it’s collected on the registration page. When registration opens December 4, what we hope will happen is that a registration form will appear on that page. If the form isn’t working by then, the backup plan is that we’ll give you an email address and a list of what information to include.

There’s not going to be a specific time for registration to go live. Remember, all requests received by the 8 PM EST January 6 cutoff time will be treated equally, so there’s no need to stampede, just don’t forget! We will make announcements on social media when registration is live.

By the way, if we do have to go to a lottery, and you need to be lotteried together with someone– for example, if you and a friend would be sharing a ride and rooming together, and you can only come if you both get in– there will be an opportunity to let us know. As long as both you and your friend request that you be lotteried together, we will assign you one number for the drawing.
