The last data I know about was from 2009-2010. Of the 15-18 in the program, like 60% applied to med school, 20% dropped out/changed their mind, and 20% decided to wait another year - so like 11 or 12 ended up applying. I think 7 got into UConn and 2 or 3 got in elsewhere.

The numbers are approx - its a small program, about half got into UConn med.

The reason a lot of people apply is because there arent a whole lot of post-bac programs in New England in general. UMass doesnt have a formalized one, nor does RI, and yet there are a ton of college-educated people looking to stay close to home. Geography is probably a major driving factor.
