Yes. You have to create a new Match, with new Applicants and
Institutions, for each run of the simulation.

I don't know what you mean by this. A Match can be created with rules
for its distributions. The Match then creates Applicants and
Institutions for its run, does the simulation and returns the results.
A Simulation also has the distribution rules, so it can create Matches
using those rules.
