Every school is way different on this. Stats should be on each school's website.

Someone posted this sort of thing a while back, so it's floating around a forum somewhere. Try a search, you may find it.

Don't schools accept > than they matriculate to figure in a percentage of folks that do not attend?

I think the table comes from US NEWS (a older version).

I am interested to know where the stats come from, because I have looked for this sort of thing before and have only found this very chart. Still, it is nice to look at. I like all those seventysomething percents.

Start in the top right hand corner of the chart and proceed right until you see the "Enrolled" box. Now, count down 6 boxes until you see the numbers 123 & 266, which correspong to enrolled students in-state and out of state respectively. 123+266= 389. LECOM is one of the largest osteo. medical schools, so these numbers are probably very accurate.

So apparently thinking is not my strong suit. I forgot to add the IS. Thanks!

I thought they only enrolled around 260, it just doesnt seem right to me, maybe they added bradenton to that number:confused:

... 123+266= 389. LECOM is one of the largest osteo. medical schools, so these numbers are probably very accurate.

It's old information. That year LECOM reported both schools in one figure. You can look up all the latest published data from AACOM.

http://aacom.org/data/annualreport/slideshow/index.html

This is for the last couple of cycles available, but keep in mind it's old now too:

Now, keep in mind that that shows the total number of applications and most people apply to about six places. According to AACOMAS, the class entering in 2006 had a total of 9,737 applicants for 3,980 spots. So... 40.875% of the people who applied ended up in med school last year.

The class entering 2007 had 11,455 individual applicants and a total of 74,712 applications. Even though a few hundred new seatrs opened up, with that number of applicants the percentage is probably below 40% now.

Does anyone know how many of those that applied actually went to an allopathic school instead.

scpod ~ that was a nice chart,

What I liked most about the chart is the number of people who enrolled vs the number of people who actually made it through and graduated... approx 20 or so people dropped out from every school.... thats not a bad ratio at all.

I wounder if the allopathic schools have the same ratio of Enrolled vs graduated

I wondered if an acceptance constituted an acceptance or also included waitlist, alt lists, ect.

I have been told that most schools lose approximately 10% of their class along the way.
