So far, I've been pretty disappointed in the quality of data published on the medical school admissions process, even in the MSAR. It seems to be the norm, however, and becomes moot in the scheme things. That is, until you see a shining example of what it could be: http://med.umich.edu/medschool/admissions/apply/profiles.html 1) Is there a reason for this lack of transparency in admissions? 2) Shouldn't we be advocating for better treatment in this grueling process? I'd love to hear thoughts on why or why not medical school applicants deserve to be more informed and if anyone (LizzyM?) has an alternative opinion to offer in the debate.
