The Match Algorithm is designed such that it cannot be gamed or manipulated.
The only strategy is to rank your choices in order of your true preferences, without considering how you expect to be ranked by any track.
Rank all tracks at programs to which you applied that would be acceptable. Submitting a longer list of tracks may reduce your chances of being left unmatched.
Do not rank any track that you consider unacceptable (i.e., you would not want to be matched to the track, even if it was the only position available to you in the Match). You can only be matched to tracks that appear on your Rank Order List.
