Thought this thread was about lsd... Looks like I read the title wrong
If you want your seat, show up early. At least Iowa State students don't need to camp out for good seats like other top tier MBB programs.
Not a fan of overselling. Just seems inherently wrong.
But I don't understand how someone can buy something on not use it. Boggles my mind.
this mighta been answered, so dont kill me, but if there are too many students for the section, and other seats r open, can they take them?
Whole industries make significant use of the concept of overselling. Airlines, car rentals, hotels. Insurance is all about the "oversell" that more people will pay than need the service they are paying for.
The key is to have a contingency plan. Airlines give travel vouchers for passengers that get bumped. Car rental companies give you free upgrades if they don't have the class of car you reserved. Insurance companies have their own insurance if their claims are higher than expected.
For MBB it could be "standing room only" or a guaranteed seat to a future game. However, I think they should just be transparent and say that tickets are for seating on a first-come-first-served basis.
I am sure the writer was in cyclone alley :spinny:
