  1. Anyone surprised by anything up here? Leave a comment!

    I personally would be interested in seeing what a medical school ranking would look like if it wasn’t specifically for “research” or “primary care”. What if we ranked med schools the way we ranked undergraduate colleges?

    And hopefully C can address in another post: What exactly is being ranked here (i.e. what is the formula for rankings looking for/emphasizing)? Will Harvard EVER be less than #1 because the ranking is for research after all and Harvard has 3 big research centers rather than 1 like most schools?

    -T

  2. 2 requests:

    A) Could you expand this to include the top 30 schools?
    B) Could add the median step 1 scores that were recently published? (keeping in mind they are of questionable value given a typical std dev of >20 pts for that exam)

    Add these to things, and you may get enough unique hits from google to fund a new iPad for next semester haha.

    Thanks for the interesting data, as always.

  4. Wow, Stanford’s #2.

    I’m not too surprised though, since for pre-meds interested in research, HST and Stanford seem like top choices.
