This report represents the third phase in the College Board's Admissions Models Project. The first two phases of the project are summarized in two monographs: Toward a Taxonomy of the Admissions Decision-Making Process (1999) identifies nine different philosophical approaches to admissions and related selection criteria; and Best Practices in Admissions Decisions builds on the Taxonomy and outlines various components of a best practices model for admissions decision-making. The purpose of this phase of the project was to examine exactly how institutions make admissions decisions. Information from more than 100 institutions, representing all levels of selectivity, forms the basis for this report.
