Is It OK to Tell the Program They are My Top Choice? Will This Affect My Ranking?

Yes, it is OK to say “your program will be my top choice” or “I will rank you on top of my list” etc. However, most likely, this will not affect how the program rank you. Personally, I think it is too early to tell the program ” you are my No. 1 choice” right after the interview (unless it is at the end of the interview season). It makes the program to think you are too desperate. I prefer something like: I still have a few interviews to go. However, from all the programs I interviewed, I like your program the most. I think it will be my top choice. You can always send a follow up email at the end of the interview season to let them know you are going to rank them No. 1 (again, this WILL NOT change how the program rank you).
