Is there a list anywhere of schools that accept mainly minority students? I am a white, over-represented majority, and I don't want to accidentally waste my time and money on a school that accepts primarily URMs.

I know Howard and Meharry mainly accept URMs, but are there more :confused:

lol, maybe not in medicine, but the thread topic is asking which schools caucasians shouldn't apply to. there is no way ucla is on that list because they have a high amount of asian students.

UCLA? I thought they just had a large Asian population but maybe I'm wrong.
I believe Drew/UCLA is the program for minorities. What most people apply to is the Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA, the regular MD track.

Actually, all those schools you should apply to as a caucasian or any other ethnicity. Just look at the mission statements because those schools do take them seriously. If you're not interested in pursuing the kind of medicine they're looking to train you for (i.e. serving in underserved communities, etc.), then you'll have a hard time getting in regardless of ethnicity. And if you are and you show it, they'll be interested in you, regardless of ethnicity.

I thought Meharry was welcoming to Caucasians of disadvantaged backgrounds... at least, so they seem to indicate.
