School? Typo my bad
I'd like to know.
Funny that you once accused @efle of redundant threads, and then you go ahead and post this.
depends on the school. some universities don't like their own undergrads attending their own grad schools as they want "diversity"
It depends upon the school. MSAR Online's matriculant demographics page gives you the numbers. Brown has the highest selection for their grads (> 60%).
U Wisc: 36% (!) I'll have to remember that.
U IA: 24%
No one's perfect
USC-Keck had 17% of its class come from USC for its Class of 2018 although this is in large part due to the Bacc/MD program over there. The last group of Bacc/MD students matriculated this year, so it will be interesting to see the distributions this cycle now that the program has been removed. They seem to like UCLA undergrads a lot!
Alot of this is also through BS/MD programs. Brown is the obvious one but I think Drexel's is that high because of their BS/MD program as well.
I'm curious now if there is a private/public difference here, since Michigan is also insanely self-favoring (26%), so is UCD (27%), U of W is up there (22%), U Va (21%), UCSD (20%)...University of New Mexico 60% (they have BS/MD)! U of A 23% and 27%...wow
Yes I do think there is some evidence that public schools might more inclined to take a greater number from their own undergrad than their private counterparts in many occurences, particularly those who are also residents of those states. Also BS/MD's are plentiful amongst public schools(although that isn't to say private schools like Pitt, Brown and Northwestern don't have them as well and of course the infamous one from the good folks at WASHU which happen to demand a 3.8/36).
Ah you've totally got it - the vast majority of students there are instate residents, and lots of good students since the med schools tend to be associated with the flagship campuses for their states. Add onto that the connections you can get into your own programs, starts to make more sense that ~1/4th are returnees
