How To Stand Out At Dreaded Roomate Open Houses?

Good Questions

Q: I've recently begun looking for a new apartment with roommates (utilizing Craigslist's "rooms & shares" listings) and while most people who've posted open rooms for rent will schedule one-on-one time, others try to get it all out of the way with one open house. I find these incredibly frustrating as there's no time for them to get to know me (let alone remember who I was of the 20+ people that showed up). How can I make sure to stand out during these open houses and win the open room if I feel like it's a good fit?Sent by Lindsay
