    anyone have an idea?

    i heard the general # is 1 out of 3 or 4 people who get interviews get into the school... in general.. but it's really different for each school...

    anyone know the # for UCLA?
    And also... since i've made it to the interview process, I assume being an out-of-stater won't be a negative factor, right?
    I will be reviewed equally w/ the CA residents?

    I hope i get some replies...
    thanks~
    GOOD LUCK TO YOU ALL!!:clap:

    The ratio varies from school to school. Doesn't the AAMC publish a book on the stats from each school? They used to publish number of applicants, number interviewed, and number accepted.

    When I went to Hopkins, I think they interviewed around 700 and accepted about 200 to fill a class of 120. Thus, it should be pretty close to 1:3 or 1:4.

    Good luck.

    Ooh, ooh! I can answer this! Pick me!

    Odds of acceptance:

    If you have a great interview (and they like you): 100%

    If you have a lousy interview (and they hate you): 0%

    Hope I helped! :laugh:

    Seriously, good luck, Eunice!
