Descriptive Study of Medical School Applicants, 1975-76.
Gordon, Travis L.
The purpose of this study was to provide a comprehensive description of both applicants and acceptees to U.S. medical school first-year classes for the 1975-76 academic year. Primarily a replication of the previous year's study, it (1) reports on application activity both at the national level and for individual medical schools, and (2) analyzes the total applicant pool and those accepted from it by their demographic and background characteristics, academic ability, and career plans. The present study focuses on changes in applicant data from 1974-75 to 1975-76. Included are an analysis of the academic ability and acceptance success of college seniors applying to medical school for the first time and new analyses of the background characteristics and career plans of women applicants. Data are presented in narrated tabular form. (Author/MSE)
