Is there anything wrong with using protektzia or connections to get something otherwise difficult or impossible to get? Would it make a difference if it would help you “cut the line” and get something earlier or get a limited-amount spot?
If it does not come at the expense of anyone else, it is allowed. If it comes at the expense of someone else, e.g. there is a limited amount, although very often allowed, it would depend on the specific factors of the case.
All the best
