Possible to programmatically select which autoresponder to subscribe to?

Hi guys,

I work for an educational company that holds live in-person seminars. We have a particular free event that lets people sample what we do, and on our event's sales page there is a dropdown list of event dates the student can choose from.

Here's the challenge: If the student signs up well in advance of the selected event's start date, then we want to subscribe him/her to a serial autoresponder with 5 separate emails. But if it's too close to the selected event's start date, he/she should only receive 1-2 condensed emails.

So, the logic is...

If (EventDate - CurrentDate >= SOME_THRESHOLD_VALUE)
Enroll student in serial autoresponder (which sends 5 emails over time)
Else
Enroll student in alternate autoresponder (which will only send either 1 or 2 condensed emails).

I can definitely setup each of the autoresponders with your new serial autoresponder function. The real question is: how can I programmatically decide which to enroll the person in?

Thanks for your help,
