    @anonee Those were last year’s numbers. Editor hasn’t put up any numbers for this year yet.
    We just got our tickets in the mail yesterday. They were numbered ~1150. If you could guess the average size of the building entering and the average number of tickets a building has you could figure out about how many units have entered this year. Anyone have those data?
    [Editor’s Note: The 2,170 units last year represented 662 buildings in total.]

    And on top of all that, the conversion process is a black box.

    rr – it doesn’t matter. assuming most people do things at the last minute you really have to wait until an hour before the deadline to feel comfortable with having a good estimate. then it’ll just stress you out anyway. good luck!

    @resp I consider it a lottery. If I win, woohoo, but I expect not to. We continue to participate in the lottery not because of some need to convert but because future purchasers of our unit will probably view continuous participation in the lottery beneficial, because, eventually, the building will win. (That is, unless the new owners reset the clock and lose lottery privileges)
