Yeah, I wouldn't use the words "Top Choice", but professors in our program recognize that you're going to have programs you're more and less enthusiastic about. I think it's important to emphasize that you are very excited about the program, but that you are enthusiastic about hearing/learning more about it while your there. Coming in with a set "top choice" can kind of come off as immature and not so well thought out.
