If you can list some it would be great, if not no problem.
Nice job done here.
What should be a wake-up call for people with sub par stats is to look at the 10th percentile MCAT and GPA columns...especially the VR...
Very hard to differentiate schools based on the 90th percentile numbers for GPA...
Did you get all the data from the MSAR? If not, could you please list sources? Seems some US med schools have a median GPA of 3.4 or lower and even lower BCPM GPA. Of course, LSU and Indiana are the easiest to get into - they have a median of 0.2! (j/k, it must be a typo).
Another poster (under a second account I believe) posted this originally, and he took the numbers from the latest MSAR.
The only US schools I see with median GPA's of 3.4 or below are the historically-black med schools.
This should be stickied...
michigan state used to be 3.1 (in my 07 msar i believe) ... i'm amazed at how much that has gone up

Are those the only black med schools? Does that mean that a caucasian can't get in (assuming s/he wouldn't care about fitting in)? In any case, it's good to know. Med school must be stressful enough even without the burden of fitting in.
Anyone knows if this is from 2009 MSAR? The title of the file seems to say that.
This is a great datasheet. I have to look at MSAR again because when I looked at an old version in library reference it didn't seem to contain anywhere near this much data. Maybe I didn't look carefully.
The 10th percentile for Michigan State is still 3.1. I am sure that's what you had looked at in 2007 because the GPA couldn't have jumped up by 0.5 points (3.6 is their median) in just a year or so.
If anyone finds mistakes or completes some of the data, please repost. Once I get the MSAR I will check the data for every school on my personal list.
are those numbers for those who matriculated or were accepted?
also, isnt it copyright infringement to post that? seems like that information is property of the AAMC
MSAR gives the accepted student data.
It is not copyright to share what you have learned. If the data shared was the scanned pages of MSAR, then yes, that could be considered an infringement. On whose side are you anyway?
