Abstract : The report describes a simulation of the process of nonroutine decision making. Although the overall study is oriented to the general nonroutine problem, it also concerns the simulation of college selection. The model is described both broadly and in terms of computer simulation. Two types of output are presented: the creation of a specific 'history' and the aggregate characteristics of the processes.
