Here is what our schools have said!
The Lotterease program is addictive and I checked it at least once a day until my daughter finally got in mid-July; only 35 days before school started!
We were very pleased with the implementation.
We had a successful lottery! Incredible system. Thank you for your support!
It is so much easier to use Lotterease than to do this by hand.
It was great as a first time applying to a lottery. I knew where I was at on the wait-list at all times. It was very helpful.
What normally takes us 2 hours only took 10 minutes. We couldn’t believe it was that easy to run a lottery.
The last of the part of the name, Lotter-ease, is what it’s all about. You made it easy.
The ability to limit applicants by age group is fantastic!
