    There is a book that is called the Gourman Report that ranks graduate schools, medical schools included. I heard about this ranking system when I was applying last year. For some reason, the rankings in the book were considered contraversial, and the list did differ from the one published by USNEWS.

    I don't think any of the rankings are listed on the internet but if you do a search, you might be able to find something.

    I was going to post this, but I did not know how reliable the source was.

    I wonder what process they use in order to make the list.

    "They" seems to be one guy in a shack in Montana without electricty consulting a Ouija board.

    It mentions that he looks at things like faculty salaries, mission statements, and other obtuse and vague aspects of schools in addition to the numbers - definitely different than the quantitative U.S. News "mathematics" - to create his list.

    try not to overly weigh medical school "rankings" when determining which medical school you want to attend. u.s. news doesn't include things like: cost, location, proximity to friends/family, curriculum style, etc.
    try to use the rankings and statistics as a guideline, but by no means think that so and so - #25 school is much better than so and so -#34 ranked school, etc.. think about what is best for you!
