Medical School Acceptance Rates, 2007–2009

Mark Perry, Carpe Diem, June 27, 2010

Here’s a new chart with updated data from the Association of American Medical Colleges on medical school acceptance rates for Asians, whites, Hispanics and blacks during the period 2007-2009, based on various combinations of MCAT scores (24-26 and 27-29) and GPAs (from 3.00 to 3.59).

For example, for applicants with an MCAT score between 24-26 and a GPA between 3.00 and 3.19, only 1 out of every 25 Asian applicants was accepted, compared to about one out of every 11 white applicants, one of out every three Hispanics, and more than half of black applicants with those same credentials.

Thanks to Walt G. for the help pointing out the links to the data.
