Does anyone have the most recent full med school rankings from US News with MCAT scores, undergraduate GPA, acceptance rate, etc.? The website only shows the top 11 med schools for different categorizations of medicine (family practice, internal medicine, etc.). But they charge for it. Is there a better place to get these things for free? Or is it worth paying for?

buy the MSAR. It is much more useful. You don't want to know what the rankings are. The knowledge will only cause harm.

Aren't the rankings based on NIH funding more than anything else?

To rank medical schools based SOLELY on NIH funding would be too specific. If you wanted an MD/PHD program or wanted to solely do research then ranking schools based off of NIH funding ONLY might be appropriate.

However, to rank schools more generally you need to look at residency matching, price, accreditation status, etc.

There are a lot of things to factor in ranking medical schools.
