URMs Accepted/Interview Invite This Cycle

This forum made possible through the generous support of SDN members, donors, and sponsors. Thank you.
stop complaining; it's pathetic


desire for equality: pathetic.


We all know how premeds have paid enough taxes to warrant the subsidization of their medical education

Percent of medical school graduates planning on working in an underserved community

White: 18% said yes, 42% said no, 40% undecided
Asian: 15% said yes, 37% said no, 48% undecided
Black: 50% said yes, 10% said no, 39% undecided
Hispanic: 33% said yes, 23% said no, 44% undecided

So until you start providing a way to increase the number of physicians in underserved areas by accepting more asians and whites, your little whining fit about URM's isn't going anywhere

i guess future income is suddenly irrelevant
i'm glad i can see that they said they would go practice in underserved communities instead of seeing data on where they actually chose to practice but please, make all the aspersions that you want.

Seriously, people who hijacked this thread. If you want to go rant about URMs, then go somewhere else, you aren't helping anyone

Simply put, I believe that disadvantaged (and presumably URM) can help get your foot in the door.

There are probably schools that looked at my application based upon disadvantaged; that might have tossed based upon stats w/o ever reading. But that checkbox didn't get me INTO medical school.

Everyone stands on their own two feet in the application process, disadvantaged/URM levels the early playing field but doesn't give you a pass.

I've seen the stats that it is easier to get in as a URM and I can't explain them since I'm a male WASP. But I had to explain why I claimed disadvantaged and I can promise they didn't just had out acceptance letters.

There are 883 URM's per admissions cycle who are admitted to non-URM schools when they "shouldn't" be.

This number comes from my own analysis of the AMCAS data, comparing the numbers from the White applicants grid and the Hispanic/Black/Native American "URM" grid. (Grids found here https://www.aamc.org/data/facts/app...mcat-gpa-grid-by-selected-race-ethnicity.html)

The URM schools I removed from the data are Morehouse, Meharry, Howard, three Puerto Rico schools.

883 is barely anything when you're looking at 40,000 applicants per cycle.

I can post a more detailed explanation of the analysis later on tonight when I have more time, if anyone would like to hear more about the methodology. Basically, I took the % of applicants accepted in each MCAT/GPA box from the White applicants and multiplied it by the number of applicants from the URM box. This gave me the # of URM's who "should" have been accepted if they would have applied as white applicants. When added together for the 3 years, there "should" have been 4503 URMs accepted. There actually were 8693 URM's accepted. HOWEVER, that difference can mostly be explained by the 6 URM schools (Morehouse, Meharry, Howard, three Puerto Rico schools) which account for 1539 seats over three years. That leaves 2650 URM's accepted when they "shouldn't" be or 883 per year.

wow, your'e right, 883 compared to 40,000 is a huge difference. For all you anti-URM folks, I'm sure when your'e children have children, there may be equality for all but that just isn't the case right now
 
At 3:16 Mario sacrificed Yoshi to get further into the level. Are you sure this is the perfect video describing your circumstance?

That's just mario being a gunner.

Why would them saying they would practice in an underserved area matter after they graduated medical school?

Medical schools want to see applicants that would practice where there are more doctors needed (underserved areas), which statistically speaking, URMs are more inclined too.

Which is why he posted it the stats he did...
