It is sorted alphabetically. Please verify it for accuracy. Just for clarification, seeing a DHA next to your name does NOT mean that you are now automatically a 2015 Duluth Hunter. All it means is that we're at this stage of the process. You are still required to attend one of two mandatory Orientation Night meetings.
For those not drawn last night, you have a preference point for 2016.
The results are as follows:
- 383 total applicants
- 8 removed for not sending in their checks on time
