the good news: I was their choice to take the room. They felt I clicked with them.
The bad news: They call the other person taking the other open room (one of their friends) to discuss the potential roommates and she then tells them that one of her friends wants to take the room. She apparently is in law school (finals time) and didn't have time to tell them.
So guess who gets the room...Not me:(
Third place prize: They said to call them when I get in the city to go out for a drink.
*sigh* Back to the drawing board. It's a rough game out there....I sure hope I make it through this process!
