Entrance Quotas and Admission to Medical Schools: A Sequential Probit Model.
Cannings, Kathy; And Others
Economics of Education Review, v15 n2 p163-74 Apr 1996
Explores whether 1987 entrance quotas used by a highly selective medical school (University of Montreal) were meritocratic or free from discrimination and arbitrary decisions. A sequential probit model shows that the performance variables as measured by the admissions committee only partially explain the committee's decisions. Many "best" performers were not admitted.
