I think you are making a mountain out of a mole hill. It is irrelevant if "all applications are in the preference point draw". While technically true, as Guy explained, in a high demand unit requiring lots of preference points, those with zero or few points aren't going to draw a tag in the preference point round, when there aren't enough tags for those with max points. The low points holders aren't actually considered in the draw, although they technically are "in the draw". Pointless semantics. It does matter, of course, in an undersubscribed or low demand unit requiring 0-1 points. But that really isn't the intention of the MRS. It is intended to summarize what is often many, many pages of state regs into a concise summary. Summaries by their very nature don't include every detail.
I do agree the Utah draw results date was just from three years ago when tags were drawn in April. That mistake should have been caught. But everyone makes mistakes. And most states make if purposely difficult to really know the true odds. They don't want us to know or most wouldn't participate. These systems aren't designed to be transparent, or even fair, whatever that means. They are government run ponzi schemes, and participate at your own risk. I assess each state, and do participate in some of them.
