Either way, I learn who my room mate is in roughly a month. PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF GOD BE AN OUTGOING COOL GUY.
Some frat guys are alright, but dear god, I hope you don't end up with a guy like one of my freshman roommates. I lived in a 4 person suite, and while one was a friend from high school, and one was pretty cool, the other was the living, breathing version of everything the "generic fratboy douche" stereotype should instantly put in your head.
I'm pretty easy to get along with, I believe, but eating all of someone's food, not contributing to anything in the room in any way (cleaning, supplies, etc), blasting shitty rap music all the time, always wandering in late at night, completely shitfaced (would be different if he wasn't such an obnoxious drunk), and just in general being a cocky bastard are all pretty quick ways to grate on essentially anyone's nerves, I believe.
While most frat guys I know I personally wouldn't spend too much time hanging out with, they're not all spoiled little shits, and that was just one shitty roommate out of like 3.
Apart from that, I've been living in a 2 person room with a good friend of mine, and it has been pretty sweet so far. So yeah, that's my 2 cents, and here's hoping that your roommate doesn't end up being a total douchedick.
