A lot of people seem to be in Business Associations, CivPro II, First Amendment, Evidence ... probably a few others I'm forgetting.

Any class that 1Ls can bid on won't be filled before they have an opportunity to bid, though it may be tough to get into a few because of the bid price and the relative lack of bid points you have. You can look at the historical "cost" of classes before you allocate your points so that you can kind of guess how much you'll need to get in. As far as I can tell, you can probably get any class on the list that you want but probably can't get BOTH of two classes that you really want if they're both really popular. I think there were quite a few people though that could have gotten the classes they wanted with 2 bid points total because they actually were looking for classes that didn't fill up entirely and thus might not be curved unless people switch after bidding.

Can only speak to the ones I'm in, but one seems 1L heavy, maybe 75 or 80%, while the other seems more mixed.
