Based on our team members' experiences, in order to find a place to live while studying at PSU, three living places have been selected for our study. They are private apartments, on-campus apartments, and a host family. The locations of interested apartments were limited within 2-5 miles from PSU. See Appendix 1 for the details of living places that we chose for the analysis.

We used the decision model to describe the complicated problems and solved it for the best solution. In the real world, however, there are many factors that affect our decisions. Therefore, the decision model can be sharpened by the judgment of the decision maker by considering his/her own assumptions.
