Hello to all,

Having been through the frustrations of medical school applications, a few of us current medical students are compiling a wiki that will contain up-to-date information from admissions offices.

What are some questions you wish the medical schools made easier to find out?
(Ex. Rolling admission? Dual Degree Programs? Best time to apply? Average scores?)

Please let us know so we best know how to prepare this guide for y'll!

Edit: We know that this is pretty much an online MSAR. In our experience, however, the MSAR data is often wrong and outdated. The online wiki is our attempt to fix this.

I wish clinical year breakdowns were better. Its such an important time, I wish more emphasis was drawn to third and fourth years.

Could you elaborate? Do you mean information such as:

- at what point do you begin clinical years
- grading system during clinical years?
- required rotations?

Thanks!

How about the percentage of graduates that match with their top choice?

+1

The problem is that schools don't generally release this information...even in the MSAR it only shows # interviewed, then matriculants (but not # accepted).

Some schools' websites do have this information but usually not readily available.
