Just a quick note. The order that you put schools on the CAF should not be based on your likelihood of getting in. It should be based on your true preference irrespective of how likely or unlikely you think it is that you will get it. The schools are blind to which order you put them in and you have no better or worse chance of getting in based on the order you put them in. Do not think that there are some tactics to be played out here. There are not. Honest.
thanks, Threekids for your inputs. I don't think its about tactics or strategy, but the reality of what we (specifically my DS) wants,whether he can get it there/not based on his score as well as consideration about others. I think it will be very difficult for him to get into Tiffins, hence, here is no point in putting it as first option, as it may be disadvantageous for somebody else.
It would be interesting to know what would be your considerations.
