Frequently Asked Questions

The creators of Top 5, in their infinite wisdom, have decided to reveal two numbers to each participant:
1. The number of mutual matches (this will be a number between 0 and 5).
2. The total number of people who listed you as one of their Top 5.

*No actual names will be disclosed – you will only get the numbers above.

Can I put in more than 5?

No. Just 5. Only 5. (Or less than 5.)

Just a number, huh? I'm, like, totally gonna game this. See, I'll enter in one person two times and another person once, and then I'll be able to figure out which person likes me.

Won't work. Sorry. Duplicate people are immediately and automatically deleted. If you enter the same person five times, the system will treat that as just one person.

Can I change my choices? Can I delete them?

You can change them as many times as you want, up until the deadline. Only your last submission will count.

If you want to delete your choices, just re-submit an empty list.

How do I know this is secure?

Names were never stored on the list - instead there's just some little number representing everyone. Also, only Nikhil Sinha in India has access to the list, and we'd be very surprised if you knew him.

What if I don't get matched with anyone?

Gym, tanning, laundry... We kid... Due to the size of our class, it is very possible that you may not get matched with anyone. However, since there are no names, this keeps the playing field still pretty much open for everyone that remembered to bring a toothbrush and deodorant to Miami.

Ok, how do I sign up?

1. Enter your WHARTON email address to retrieve your login link. This email address will be matched against the class list.
2. A link to log in will be emailed to your WHARTON email account.
3. Clicking on the link will bring you to a page where you can enter in the WHARTON email addresses of your Top 5. Each email address will be verified against the class list to prevent mistypes or trying to match with first years (cradle-robber!).
4. After clicking submit, you will receive an email copy of your list.

How do I get my matches?

1. Sign up will be automatically disabled based on the dates specified, and viewing matches will be automatically enabled on the date specified.
2. Use the first sign up link you got and it will show you your matches on the specified date.
3. You will be told the number of people you match with.
4. Have FUN!... But remember the sagacious words of Spiderman: "with great power, comes great responsibility".?
