I agree. You need to ask more questions, like what are the requirements for getting a committee or advisor LOR. Of those accepted how many go to MD schools, DO schools, and international MD schools (like Caribbean). And how many get an acceptance in their first application cycle.I wouldn't read too much into acceptance statistics:
1. Many schools (such as mine) restrict who is included in these statistics by putting restrictions on their committee letter ensuring only competitive applicants can apply. The applicants who do not get a committee letter are often not included in the statistics, thus making them appear more favorable.
2. You do not know where the students are being accepted. Many schools include Caribbean acceptances in these statistics.
My understanding is the national average is about 45%, so yes, above average.Hey! I'm considering transferring from my Jr. college after my first year. One of the schools I'm looking at has a 65-75% Med School acceptance rate. Is that good or average? Thanks!
