    The major ranking of medical schools is done by US News and World Report. It is available at: <a href="http://www.usnews.com/usnews/edu/beyond/bcmed.htm" target="_blank">http://www.usnews.com/usnews/edu/beyond/bcmed.htm</a>

    Naturally, these rankings are pretty arbitrary. Take them with a very large grain of salt. :D

    Yes, it makes a huge difference in your career between going to the 62nd and 63rd "ranked" school. It's too bad they don't publish the rankings that all residency directors look at and base their decisions on when they are evaluating students. Their list covers all of the schools and they really care what number your school is ranked. I've heard they even have the list out and are looking at it while they interview you. :rolleyes:

    well, if you really want it here it is:
    For the top 50 programs see US News review.
    The remaining 75 programs are joint 51st......
     
  9. I heavily agree with CKent. The most important thing to me is what residency directors think of the school.... and I know there are lots of schools not in the USN&WP top 50 that residency programs highly respect... (ie... UC Davis, George Washington and many others).
