[member=4270]mark[/member] -  Do you have an idea about when you'll compile the data? I've been putting off updating my entry and putting my info in the form because I haven't heard anything yet, but I want to make sure I do it in enough time so my data point counts.

Great question, I've been updating it as things come in, but I need to wait to finalize at least until we get any waitlist notifications. I'll definitely make a few more nagposts to make sure people have time.

Really interested in this data.  I completed the google doc, but if anyone is curious, I was in at 9:03 and received a non-DT hotel.  My roomie got in at 9:06 and hasn't received any notification yet.

Got in at 9:05 and got omni (5th choice) but gave it away because another 2 other people in our group got Hilton Bayfront which we took. Another browser got in at 9:10 and got nothing.

Thanks for posting, that seems really late for the omni. Were you notified in group 1 or group2? (May 1st or May 8th?)

The first group and ya after reading all the other peoples times i figured we would end up with zippo. They must have had other criteria in who got what.  I have heard a few other instances where people with later times ended up with closer hotels then others.

Definitely an outlier. I'm actually more surprised that you were notified in group 1, everyone else that was in that group had a form access time around the 1 to 1 and a half minute mark or earlier. (The time you submitted the form didn't matter.)

The second submission Chrome
 one time listed at  9:04:37, it loaded while I was filling out the other one and didn't hit start right away, it was 9:07 before I submitted)

6 DT
closest to CC
waitlist
Since my brother and I both got badges we thought is was fair to enter two hotel requests. He only had one browser going, I had two computers, with a total of 6 browsers.  I was able to get in twice and fill out both before he got in. 

wait listed - but our first submission got MGH so super happy.

Thanks everyone! I'm going to finalize the data set tomorrow, so there is still time to share or update your data.

Obligatory link to google form :)
