Thanks for this tip. I hope we document this on the NMI wiki or the manual.
I will add "Department" to STARTD_ATTRS . I have preemption off
therefore I don't have to worry about it.
Basically, your rank statement is saying:
If Department is undefined the rank will be 0. Meaning everyone has

Else If department is defined then chemistry has 1000 of a better
chance than other departments
Is there an easier way to rewrite this statement :-) It looks
complicated for newbie condor admins.
