There has been some discussion about whether assignments from the wait pools or the amended choices are random or not.
In my discussions with the EPC this morning I learned that they are not random. That the same algorithm used in Round 1 is used in the wait pools and amended choices. They may appear so since the applicant pools, particularly in the wait pools, are very similar to each other and the size of the pools are much, much smaller but the same algorithm is used.
