medical school?

<p>do you guys know what percent of wesleyan grads get into the medical school of their choice for grad school? how good is wesleyan for science?</p>

<p><a href=""&gt;;/a&gt;&lt;/p>

<p>"Over the last five years (1999 - 2003 entering classes), Wesleyan graduates with overall grade point averages of 3.5 or above have acceptance rates ranging from 83% to 100%. Medical schools accepting Wesleyan students for 2003-2004 academic year included Harvard, Yale, Columbia, Dartmouth, Albert Einstein School of Medicine, Howard, The University of Michigan, The University of California-San Francisco, and nearly two dozen others (See List #2)"</p>

<p>Wesleyan is among the best in undergrad science in terms of quality of what goes on in the classroom and lab-along with Williams, Haverford, Swarthmore, + maybe Amherst. Good metrics to go by is the national peer-reviewed funding (NSF/NIH) and # of undergrads who co-author papers. This is a case where a small grad school helps...Their kids may not do quite as well as the other 3 for med school (their admits are >>90%), but their standardized testing may not be quite as good, either, coming in. But still well.</p>

<p>Re science at Wes. From the Wesleyan website:</p>

<p>"No. 1 in National Science Foundation (NSF) Funding among Liberal Arts Peers
This is an objective ranking based on available NSF funding data. Between 2001 and 2003 Wesleyan received $14.49 million in NSF funding (this reflects the most recent data available – Wesleyan was also No. 1 in the previous survey that ran up to 2001). Next closest was Mt. Holyoke at $5.31 million. Carleton was 3rd, Barnard 4th and Wellesley 5th.</p>

<p>No. 1 in Science and Math Publications Among Liberal Arts Peers
Also objective and a very significant ranking within the scientific community, this data set runs between 1994-2004 and shows that Wesleyan had a little less than 1,061 scientific publications during this period. Williams was No. 2 with just over 508 publications. Rounding out the top five were Wellesley No. 3, Swarthmore No. 4, Amherst No. 5."</p>

<p>Medical school acceptance rates are notoriouslyly prone to manipulation; every LAC on the planet claims at one time or another to have had a >90% acceptance rate which is why the Wesleyan website gives a five year range and correlates it with gpa:
