I'm trying to study for a final right now :)
Zone 5 is what you get automatically unless you put yourself on the waitlist for another zone. Its several miles from campus and you have to take a shuttle, so if you are perpetually late like me, its not good. Zone 4 is decent, but Zone 3 is the best for the price in my opinion. The waitlists take FOREVER, so if you want to get out of Zone 5, I would first pick a zone that has the lowest waitlist number. I signed up for Zone 4 a week or 2 before orientation and got a spot quickly because of all of the May graduates leaving. I stupidly waited until July 1st to sign up for a Zone 3 Non-Reserved spot, and it took 10 months for me to get moved... I just got the new zone yesterday. I think I was #167 on the list in July.
The program is going great. I like it alot, but there are some classmates that don't like it because there are constant changes being made.
