Howard is not a joke of a med school. Ask anyone who has been rejected or waitlisted there, and they will tell you how difficult it is to be accepted there. With only 40% of people who apply to medical school gettin in anywhere, there are no joke medical schools, no safety schools, no bad schools, or whatever you want to call them. For you to insult people who did not get in by saying they cannot read or write, is very immature and insensitive, not to mention ignorant to how difficult this application process. BTW, I am seriously considering howard over schools like Sinai, Einstein, and Drexel because I, honestly, believe that it is a better fit for me, and will help me reach my goals.I think if you can read and possibly write, you have an excellent chance to get admitted to Howard...its a joke of a med school along with Meharry...
As soon as i think a statement on this message board could not get any worse, someone comes up with one that far exceeds my expectations. Your ability to ridicule others and put them down will surely take you very far in life.Originally posted by alphabeta53

Took the words out of my mouth. I think that HU is a historic institution of great academic excellence and it is really sad that someone had the audacity to say something so dumb. Trust me the interviews were just as rigorous as the IV leagues that I interviewed at and so is the selection process. I think it is all about personal fit with the school. I think that your confidence in medicine is a lot greater after training with some of world's best physicians (Black or white)! This is actually coming from someone whom HU lost her interview file and did not tell until like eight months later. Despite issues, it is a great academic institution!Originally posted by bennet

That data looks like its a few years old to me.Originally posted by Supernumerary
Here's a pretty nice link. I haven't looked at it much since I'm not interested in med school. Just saved the link for a friend; I don't even know what year it's for. Hope it's helpful though. Good Luck.
I am on the waitlist at Mount Sinai, and expecting to hear from Einstein sometime next week. I am leaning towards howard though because I am from DC, it would be a lot cheaper, and I like a lot of the changes they have been making recently to the curriculum and such.Originally posted by allenn
