With a lottery number well over 300, and being enrolled at college, I was fortunate not to be forced to resist or submit to the draft.  While I was active in our campus student political organization that worked against the war and for civil rights, I suffered no lost time or anxiety thanks to the lottery.

While I had friends with very low lottery numbers, my recollection was that they were able to maintain their student deferments and resist the draft by virtue of their parents hiring attorneys.  We were all extremely aware that this was a privileged position, and that many of our peers lacked either the resources or the knowhow to do this.
