Default How often do they wind up at the prison they request?

Question so is it often that they get sent to one of the prisons they request?

Nope, not really. I've been doing this for 17 years and mostly I see they are sent wherever there is an open bed, at the correct level....

Ya it will definitely depend on how many points he has, whether he is a level 180 or a 270, and what other criteria he has.

180 and 270 are (literally) the degrees the yards are laid out it.

A 180 yard is like a half circle. It's considered a more restricted yard.

A 270 is wider than a half circle, more "freedom".

I thought that was dumb when I first heard it so I asked my husband why it would matter, he said a 270 yard has the potential for less visibility from the guard positions. They're harder to monitor. Hence the requirement that an inmate qualify for that type of "freedom".
