In small groups, discuss the following:

  1. What information about the applicant is being collected?

    What do they indicate about the decision premises (i.e. value and factual premises) guiding the admissions process?

  2. Do you see principles of the Bounded Rationality model influencing the admissions process?

    Do you see examples of "satisficing," simplified search, or "performance program" at work?

  3. Suggest improvements to the FI admission process.
