Título de la exposición: “Do you like me enough?” (en coautoría con Jeanne Lafortune and Alejandro Saenz)


This paper estimates the impact of a policy shift in 2003 where one university within the Chilean deferred-acceptance university matching process started imposing that it would only consider applicants who ranked it amongst the first four options.  We show, theoretically, that this leads to a university being able to capture some better candidates from the “middle” of the distribution.

We show empirically that this new policy changed the application strategy of potential students and led to a change in the allocation of students to universities in a way consistent with our model.
