For medical school hopefuls, receiving an acceptance letter is a highly anticipated attainment. The only thing better? Receiving multiple letters of acceptance from several institutions. So which do you choose? A key deciding factor may be in looking at the percentage of accepted students that various schools actually enroll.
According to statistics compiled by researchers at US News & World Report, these medical schools consistently enroll at least 75 percent of the students they accept:
- University of Kansas Medical Center: 248 students accepted, 211 enrolled
- University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences: 205 students accepted, 171 enrolled
- University of Oklahoma: 199 students accepted, 165 enrolled
- University of New Mexico: 128 students accepted, 103 enrolled
- University of Washington: 296 students accepted, 235 enrolled
- University of South Dakota: 74 students accepted, 58 enrolled
- University of Utah: 131 students accepted, 102 enrolled
- Ohio University: 182 students accepted, 141 enrolled
- Harvard University: 219 students accepted, 167 enrolled
- University of North Carolina: 240 students accepted, 180 enrolled
Of course, your ultimate choice will depend on multiple factors.
