Exploratory tool for school admissions

With thousands of applications, it can be tough deciding who to admit in to your program. The aptly named Admitulator, by Golan Levin, helps faculty sort things out:

Admitulator 2.0 (2010). A custom tool for quantitatively evaluating university applicants according to a diverse array of weighted metrics. The pie chart is the core interface for sorting and evaluating applicants; it allows faculty with different admissions priorities to explore and negotiate different balances between applicant features (such as e.g. portfolio scores, standardized test scores, grade point averages, etcetera). Built in Processing for the CMU School of Art.

    Golan Levin, MIT-graduate, designed this tool to help CMU school of arts to admit the new incoming students. It is kind of subjective because it solely depends on the admission supervisor. They can manipulate the statistic in every way they want. I wonder Purdue is using it or not.
