Some schools and or districts opt to utilize a lottery for selection of students when there are more applications than there are openings within a specific program, school or grade. The method of selecting students, order of students, priorities and or weights are not determined by the Smart Choice team but are developed based on the policies provided by the schools and districts. 

If you have questions about what your chances are or how your student's application will be ranked please contact the school or district you applied to.
