Academic Achievement and Acceptance Rates of Underrepresented-Minority Applicants to Medical School.
Jolly, Paul
Academic Medicine, v67 n11 p765-69 Nov 1992
A study of historical data on medical school applicants from 1978-79 through 1991-92 indicated that acceptance rates for underrepresented minorities and others increased as applicant numbers declined, then decreased as applicant numbers rose. However, when controlled for undergraduate science achievement and Medical College Admission Test score, underrepresented minority applicants had higher acceptance rates. (Author/MSE)
