Do you guys know any college that has a 100% acceptance/matriculation rate in med school?

Is there a list on the internet?

Thanks a lot.

    Actually I think I meant to say acceptance....where 100% of the med school applicants got accepted. Not necessarily matriculated.

    Thanks and sorry about that.

    there are many schools that boast of a 100% acceptance rate, but please realize that it is an extremely tenuous statistic, easily manipulated, that gives no real idea of how good a school is for pre-med students. The use of a pre-med committee has been widely discussed on this site, and remember that the metric penalizes schools which take no measure to pre-screen students who are applying. Theoretically a state public school could have people who have taken no pre-med courses but decides to apply for ****s and giggles (I have a friend who took the MCAT as part of a bet so it's probably not out of the question that people randomly apply). There are also plenty of people who apply knowing they have no chance (another friend), but want the finality of a rejection.

    I go to Muhlenberg College and when I applied the college kept showing off its 90-100% acceptance rate to medical schools. Muhlenberg is a very small school and when we started freshman year there was about 100 students that were "premed". Now, during my sophomore year, that number is down to about 40 students because the others could not survive the workload and lost interest. By the time we are seniors and are applying to medical schools the number will probably be down to 25-30. At this point most of the students who have came this far will have statistics good enough for medical school and most likely get in (preserving the 90-100% acceptance statistic).

    Keep in mind that when schools give these acceptance rates, they aren't telling you the number of students who had to quit premed do to low grades. If they considered that statistic I'm sure that acceptance rates would be far lowerer than what we see.
