Accidentally sent I have added the rest
(by the way I refrain from using the terms attribute, method,.... as I
will likely miss use them)

for example applicant.matched = 4 and school.matched = 343 meaning
applicant 343 is matched to school 4

3, is I have a value set in a class applicant.foo = 5 and I what to
use a (method?) in the class to change this, what is the right way to
do this?

Ok that's all for now
