I only said it was creepy because of the word "scoping".. I imagined myself hiding in the bushes and checking people out with one of those submarine looker-around things.

The roommate referral service doesn't assign you a roommate. You send in a pretty basic form (do you smoke, are you willing to live with pets, etc.) and they send you emails with names of people whose forms are compatible with yours, and then you contact them on your own. That's how I understand it, anyway. I don't think it's early at all -- I feel like the longer we wait, the fewer places will be left that haven't already been leased. Not to mention that I won't be available to meet anyone from May 22 to June 28 except through Skype.
Well that's good. I've had quite a few friends who have done this roommate match-up thing for the dorms. It didn't work out too well for them, as some people seem to answer the questions dishonestly, which I don't understand.
You're right about the lease thing, I didn't think about it like that. I'll prob check out a couple places while I'm in town at the ASD. My BF is going to come with me (but not to the ASD), and we're going to check things out around town. We'll have to bring our two doggies because we don't want to board them, which will be a pain, but my BF will be there to watch them.
