Abstract: The document is from Thomas Saaty's unpublished book "New Mathematics and Measurement for the Physical, Social and Life Sciences" finished in 2004. This is chapter 7: Modeling the Graduate Business School Admissions Process. "In this chapter, we try to capture the overall decision-making process in the form of an admissions selection model that is based upon the Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP). Our model provides an explicit, unambiguous, and replicable way of evaluating applicants. It should help to increase the efficiency, objectivity, and fairness of the admissions process."
