I have actually gave a long thought about this before. The real problem comes in when there are not enough first timer applicants. For example, 100 first timers and 200 second timers balloting for 100 units.

If all 300 applicants are randomly allocated queue numbers within 3x supply of units, wouldn't it be unfair for first timers who might get 2x/2.5x queue numbers even when first timer application rate is 1.0?

I am guessing there is probably a more complex algorithm to prevent such results from happening. I might be wrong tho
Ya lor.. I don't think there is an algorithm to prevent this scenario.. Or else u won't see first timers getting a lousy number..
