  • Have you ever wondered about whether medical school admissions is becoming mawr or less competitive, or whether certain genders have different trends?

  • There's a lot of interesting data here, so let's dive in Dr Jab, all medical insiders dot com.

  • All the data presented in this video comes straight from the double AMC, the official organization overseeing United States Medical School admissions.

  • You confined the spreadsheets on their fax page link in the description of the greater than 50,000 applicants that applied to medical school in the United States each year.

  • Did you know that over one third are re applicants?

  • In the last four years, from 2017 to 2020 between 36% and 38% of applicants were repeat applicants, meaning fewer than two thirds of applicants were applying to medical school for the first time.

  • This shouldn't be that surprising, considering Onley.

  • 40% of applicants each year get accepted, meaning 60% must either choose to reapply in a future cycle or choose a different career path altogether.

  • Unfortunately, the double AMC does not publish the acceptance rate of re applicants compared to first time applicants, although if you speak to experienced admissions committee members, they'll tell you re applicants have a lower chance of getting in compared to first time applicants.

  • It makes sense.

  • After all, those applicants were not accepted by any school in a previous cycle.

  • And without substantial improvement and changes to their application the next time around, they're likely to end with a similar outcome.

  • Don't be the applicant that reuses the same personal statement and application that almost always ends poorly.

  • Make sure you figure out why you didn't get accepted and work on addressing any deficits in your application before you reapply.

  • Speaking with former admissions committee members about your application and how to improve is your best bet.

  • Not all majors are created equal, at least in terms of M cat scores and admission statistics, math and statistics majors tend to have the highest M cat score, with applicants at 5 10.5 and meticulous at 5 14.8.

  • Specialized health sciences, such as a nursing, physical therapy, occupational therapy and public health trended lowest with applicants at 502.8 and matriculate at 5 10.1.

  • The trends are similar, with acceptance rates among those majoring in math and statistics who applied to medical school, 47.4 were accepted, compared to only 36.7% of those majoring in specialized health sciences.

  • Is this a chicken or an egg phenomenon?

  • There's a great deal of nuance here, and a few reasons why we see these patterns.

  • If you want to see my full breakdown of the best major to get into medical school, including explanations of the data, we made a video addressing that exact question.

  • While medicine in the United States has historically been dominated by men, more and more women are entering the profession.

  • The majority of applicants in 45 6019 and 2020 were women, most recently with 52.1% of applicants female in terms of meticulous, over 50% of women made up entering classes to medical school in 2018 2019 and 2020 most recently at 52.4%.

  • What I found interesting is that in 2004 and 2005 there were more women that applied than men, yet Mawr men matriculated, whereas in 2018 more men applied than women, yet Mawr women matriculated.

  • What do you make of that?

  • Let us know down in the comments.

  • In terms of G p A and M cat, male meticulous tend to have slightly higher MCAT scores.

  • However, women tend to have slightly higher non science GPS, but men have slightly higher science GPS.

  • These differences do reach statistical significance.

  • Is medical school becoming mawr or less competitive?

  • You're likely not surprised to hear it's becoming mawr competitive in the United States.

  • In 2010 43.6% of applicants matriculated.

  • This is trending down, with 40.9% of applicants matriculating in 2020 Similar trends are observed with average M cat and G P A scores.

  • The average applicants M Cat has gone up from 504.7 in 2018 to 506.1 in 2020 and the average meticulous M cat has increased from 5 10.4 25 11.5 with g P.

  • A.

  • Trends are similar.

  • Applicants have gone from 3.45 to 3.48 over the last two years, and meticulous G P A have gone from 3.64 to 3.66 The official data is a valuable resource for those trying to gauge their own competitiveness in applying to medical school.

  • But remember that your M cat and G p.

  • A are not everything they're simply easy to focus on because they're easy to measure and compare.

  • Even amongst applicants with killer numbers and M cat of 5 18 or higher and a 3.8 GPA or higher, it's still not a guarantee.

  • In fact, over 12% of those with such stellar scores did not get any acceptances.

  • Don't overlook these soft components of your application.

  • If you're early on in your pre med career, that means focusing on the right experiences and extracurriculars.
