All good tips. One additional point re wait-lists that applies only to DCPS (at the moment):

I believe kids are only able to aply to 6 DCPS schools. It's a good idea to look at the wait lists in previous years and see if it's worth it. Many of the highly regarded DCPS schools have mammoth wait lists, only let in one or two OOB kids. Some don't let in any. If I were applying this year, I wouldn't be inclined to waste one of my six spots on a school my kid had NO chance of getting into, no matter how much I liked the other factors. In fact, I wouldn't even get to the other factors, because I wouldn't waste the time researching the school.
