    Don't rank for "prestige".. rank in the order of your personal preference in terms of which schools match your academic needs as well as your personal preferences (location, dorms, student body size, etc). Remember that IF you are matched... that is the school you will attend.. make sure it is a school you WANT to attend. Yes, there are 4 exceptions in terms of binding. However, if you are matched with one school (binding or not), you will not be matched with any other school.

    So, for example, if you are matched with Stanford and don't really want to go there, but you want to go to Williams instead... you'll never know if Williams would match you and you will have to apply again outside of the QB match program.
