I asked her how they decided which application would be revoked. She said, we give you the most desirable dates and cancel the other app(s).
... REALLY?!?... If I meet the person that decided, I'm going to see if I can trade the them two shiny pennies for old, ratty $100 bill.
I don't think that is quite right. During the lottery processing, your applications get processed in a random order. So the one you "won" got processed first.
Then, the process goes down through your requested dates, processing those on THAT one application in order, first to last. As soon as one is successful, the system looks up all your other applications and cancels (or Revokes???) them. I was not aware that it would look you up in the Alternate Leader slots, and cancel those, too.
