I am hearing mixed messages about the importance of the order of the 7 school choices on the SFUSD application and wonder if readers could help clarify. In a few comments on this blog people who seem like they know what they're talking about have stated that the ranking is irrelevant, and yet Rachel Norton posted on her blog that " Of the 947 families who did not receive any of their Round I choices last year, almost 800 listed one of these high demand schools as their first or second choice" which seems to imply that the order does matter. What gives?
