    I was just curious how students from non-AOA schools like Yale and Mayo are objectively compared to students from the AOA-schools in the matching process.

    AOA should be abolished. It creates unnecessary competitiveness among people who are already inherently competitive in a field that should discourage competitiveness and think only of the patient. There are other ways to evaluate applicants for residency slots.
