Since there is a great deal of interest in the most recent medical school rankings, I wanted to post the URL(s) for the new 2003 US News Top Medical School Rankings. <a href="http://www.usnews.com/usnews/edu/grad/rankings/med/medindex.htm" target="_blank">Medicine Rankings Index</a> <a href="http://www.usnews.com/usnews/edu/grad/rankings/med/brief/mdrrank_brief.php" target="_blank">Research Rankings</a> <a href="http://www.usnews.com/usnews/edu/grad/rankings/med/brief/mdprank_brief.php" target="_blank">Primary Care Rankings</a> Unfortunately, many of the useful features/information the website provided in 2002 are now available in 2003 at a cost. I am rather disappointed. The information should be disseminated freely. Please note that I am just providing information as to where the rankings are available online. I hope you will understand this point and avoid harassing me. Also, I think the rankings are useful in a sense because they provide a general idea of how various medical schools measure up against one another. However, too much emphasis should not be placed on them due to the <a href="http://www.usnews.com/usnews/edu/grad/rankings/about/03med_meth.htm" target="_blank">methodology</a> and the fact that US News claims that it is providing exclusive rankings. C'mon, this information isn't exclusive! I also think an accepted applicant should not worry too much about their school(s) of interest. Over the course of a year, an increase or decrease in a school's ranking should be taken with a grain of salt or even disregarded altogether. Go where you think you will be happy. Thank you for your understanding. Please feel free to post any opinions on this subject.
