    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.

    C'mon, this forum deserve more replies than just one. I want to hear what everyone has to say. (I know Scooby, who happens to be one of my best friends from high school, posted a similar topic, but I think my forum is better!) I'm sure there are some SDN members who *live* by the rankings and others who could care less. And, yet, there are still others who want to make fun of those who care about rankings. So, c'mon, let the debates begin!

    hahaha..............

    well ranking ain't everything but i gotta admit i'm slightly amused/happy that ucla (13) and ucsd moved up (20) one spot each.

    even if it doesn't matter, better than going down right?

    two schools i noticed on the move up: rochester and USC -- not surprising considering how much more money they are pumping into their programs now

    and correct me if i'm wrong, but i don't think i noticed any florida schools last year, now i see 2: florida (44) and miami (50).

    so what if rankings are meaningless. it's still fun

    What a waste of time! I can't believe they want to CHARGE us to see the numbers... the rankings are almost identical to last year's... all they do is switch one there and switch one here...

    they expect ppl to pay for this?!?

    definitely not worth the hype...

    Undergrad... Eh! You're only as good as your last degree, and neither of us will be attending UF...right?!? So... WHO CARES!!! :D Maybe I do a little. I do think they are terribly underrated, but what can you expect when you admit such a high percent of the applicants. ADMIT FEWER AND LET THE FACULTY AND CURRENT STUDENTS FIND A SPOT TO PARK!!!

See before hand, the school's income from the legislature was directly proportional to enrollment!! Not retention, quality of students, or even how many graduate.. purely #'s and how much that went up each year. Now that the local boards of each uni have control, they will soon (i'm predicting 2 legislative sessions) get control of tuition, creating a free market between the schools. UF, FSU and USF will get the highest tuition hikes as they are the research 1 schools. UCF, UNF, FIU are 2nd teir if I remember correctly. New College will of course get the biggest hike since they are an absolute steal in terms of liberal arts college tuition..

    what were we talking about again?? :D lol

  24. Yo, Papa, Canes and the others, MIAMI is back on the top 50 list. is it just me that got excited as hell to see that. i think now that they're becoming more "national", they'll move up even more.

    PS. Down with UF!

    I have a great idea.

    Can somebody pay for the U.S NEWS and World report so you can see the stats.

    And then just copy it and post it on SDN.

    Screw over U.S. News and World Report.

    What do you guys think.

    I know lots of peeps who paid for it...can't you just wait a week and then it will be free right?

    Anyone should be able to post a link to an "anonymous" website with all the data <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" />

They teased SwampMan and Caveman by interviewing them last year and not this year. They showed a total disregard for their own undergrads in this process. As always, I'll get over it, it'll take a while though. Never ever fall in love with a school. In all honesty, they'll be fine in the rankings. As long as everyone can pass the boards this year that is. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" />

    Yeah Caveman, Miami is creepin again. I never cared much for the rankings but for them to not even be in the top 50 in the past couple of years was ridiculous.

    Thank you very much. I noticed the used two years ago admissions stats for Baylor. Or they had the exact same class this year.

    Here are the rankings sorted by reputation for the top 10 schools (thanks, Lizardking, for the data):

    Peer assessment:

    1. Harvard / Hopkins
    3. UCSF / Duke / Wash U
    6. Stanford / U Penn
    8. U Mich
    9. Columbia / Yale

    Resident directors' assessment:

    1. Harvard / Hopkins
    3. UCSF / Duke / Wash U
    5. Stanford / U Penn / U Mich
    9. Columbia / U of Washington

    The two rankings are very similar, no?

    Not to be picky, but it's actually:

    Peer assessment:

    1. Harvard / Hopkins
    3. UCSF / Duke / Wash U
    6. Stanford / U Penn / U Wash
    9. U Mich
    10. Columbia / Yale

    Resident directors' assessment:

    1. Harvard / Hopkins
    3. UCSF / Duke
    5. Wash U / Michigan / Stanford
    8. U Penn
    9. Columbia / U of Washington

    Still, they're rather similar.

    thanks!

    now if only sdn supported tables, we'd all just be able to cut/paste the table directly to ms excel and be able to sort everything according to rank, tuition, etc. any cs/excel expert out there who knows how to sort it when its not in table format?

    You can cut & paste it straight into Excel... you just need to go to data and select "convert text to columns" after you've pasted the data from above into Excel.

    I've already done this, and if I have more time later I'll post the Excel file on the web and post the link here.

    Are there no other rankings available? Is the US News ranking a monopoly?

    Check out Wash U's average MCAT score! 12.2 corresponds to a 36.6 average! That's huge.
