This 64-page study presents detailed data on the medical school application plans of a representative sample of 1,566 full time undergraduates at 4-year colleges in the United States. The study gives specific data on plans for medical school applications, and in a separate data set on plans for medical schools outside of the United States. In addition, those sampled list the medical schools to which they are most likely to apply.

Data in the report is presented for the aggregate sample and then broken out by eighteen variables including gender, income level, race/ethnicity, age, ACT/SAT scores, level of religiosity, college grades, regional origin, type of domestic housing arrangement, student debt load, sexual orientation, college major or field of study, public/private undergrad college status, year of college class standing and other variables. The report enables medical school enrollment executives to pinpoint the level of interest in applying to medical school in many different slices and cohorts of the undergraduate population.

The highly flexible report enables medical school marketers to hone in on the exact level of interest of various populations defined by many different criteria, including many non-traditional ones. It also allows its end users to compare the exact demographic characteristics of students interested in medical schools in general and those specifically interested in medical.

Just a few of this report’s many findings are that:

  • 2.11% of those sampled thought it likely that they would apply to medical school and 5.87% believed it to be highly likely and 0.57% had already applied.
  • Black, Hispanic and Asian students each were more likely than Caucasian students to believe that they would apply to medical school.
