    The literature seems to reject the Boston mechanism on the following premise: • The Boston mechanism – Manipulable: Rank a school higher to improve the odds to get it – It produces a stable match in Nash equilibrium, there may beIt produces a stable match in Nash equilibrium, there may be many stable matches (Ergin and Sonmez ).   High schools are available for all students– including Boston’s three exam schools, where students must first pass an entrance exam to attend. This is how BPS chooses which schools a family may elect to send their student to, and how school assignment works behind the scenes. Boston Public Schools’ School Choice Website.

    In addition, the Boston Public School Committee voted to replace the existing Boston school choice mechanism with DA in (Abdulkadiroglu, Pathak, Roth and S˘ onmez ).¨ The recent literature on school choice, however, has had a more optimistic view of the Boston . and abroad. Yet, how to operationalize school choice, i.e., what procedure should be used to assign students to schools, remains hotly debated. An important debate centers around the procedure known as the \Boston" mechanism, which was used by Boston Public Schools (BPS) until the school year to assign K pupils to the city schools.

    We characterize a parametric family of application-rejection school choice mechanisms, including the Boston and Deferred Acceptance mechanisms as special cases, and spanning the parallel mechanisms for Chinese college admissions, the largest centralized matching in the world.
