Penn's Medical School

<p>I know that Penn says it doesn't give any preference to its undergraduates when it comes to graduate school admissions. But is this really true?</p>

<p>I mean of course a bunch of factors are put under consideration, but are Penn undergraduates given a sort of "legacy" status?</p>

<p>Nope. The admissions rate from Penn to the Perelman Medical School may be higher than the rate from other undergraduate institutions, but that is because the applicants typically have taken a more rigorous courseload and have done very well in those courses.</p>
