Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I also had a very late pick date both years which made it really hard to get into the dorms I wanted to be in. I was lucky my sophomore year because one of my suite mates had an early pick date so we could get into Adams.
because it is really hard to get the right roommate and make friends then, but once you know people it can be easier your sophomore year. Plus, it really is what you make it, if you make an effort it will go much smoothly.

Advice for students:
Socially, I never spoke to my floor mates freshman year, but I made a lot of friends my sophomore year on my floor (go fourth floor!). I think that anyones freshman year will be the worst year for housing.
