I think Baylor has fallen about 16 spots in the last 2 years. Maybe it will make everyone else withdraw for me.
True, having funding available to medical students is definitely something to ask about. Just have no delusions, that 200 mil is not coming your way. If you get 10 grand you are way above average.a school pulling in a hundred million in NIH funding will have their fingers in a large chunk (i think HMS dean tax is like an obscene 60% or something.. i forget, though) of it, which gets distributed as the admin sees fit, some of which would impact students positively
beyond straight cash availability, it's important for funding facilities in which you study/learn, labs that may be short on grant so they can take on some students, etc. money is always a good thing in this case imoTrue, having funding available to medical students is definitely something to ask about.

A major factor in primary care rankings is number of graduates who go into primary care fields. There are several possible factors that would contribute to a schools jumping 10 spots, not all necessarily to do with the quality of the education.Hmm....while I don't look at these rankings too often, I found it funny that the school I might attend pretty much the same for research but shot up like 10 spots for primary care. Is that a good sign?
