Was feeling extra neurotic so I decided to search up individual school stats for Matriculant/Accepted students. For all I know there is no compiled list

Admissions people from Vanderbilt have told me that their average MSTP GPA is at or a little below their average med school acceptance GPA (3.8, according to their website). Didn't ask about MCAT at the time.

My advice to the op is to avoid mixing MSTP and MD data (e.g. Duke). At the very least, make them very clearly separated.

The reality is that stats don't vary much among the competitive MSTPs in big name cities like New York, Philadelphia, Boston, etc... In general, you're looking at 3.8-3.9/36-38 as an average at all of them. At these programs the MD and MD/PhD stats do tend to be similar, albeit the MD/PhDs typically have more research and less of the other ECs. The exception are state schools where the MD/PhD loses in-state consideration, and thus the MD/PhD stats are typically higher and similar to other MD/PhD programs.

I wouldn't try to read into the difference of <0.2 GPA points or <2 MCAT average between programs in trying to decide where to apply. They are still averages, and if you're close to the average numbers or above, your application should get the same consideration.

As URochester and Emory suggests, when you get away from the top of the rankings and the big coastal cities, things generally relax to more like 3.6-3.8/34-36.

Take a look at Iowa's MSTP, they have all of the statistics on their website as well.
