I'm still confused about a very basic aspect of the new enrollment process. Do you increase your chances of getting an over-subscribed school by listing it higher on your list of preferences? For example, assume you and your "competition" are in the same tiebreaker category. Your competition lists School A as number 10 but does not get their first 9 choices. You, however, list School A as number 1. Do you have a better chance than your competition getting into that school because you listed it higher? Or, is that totally irrelevant, and it's pure lottery? Any help your readers could provide would be greatly appreciated.
