How do the medical school admissions rates at Williams vary by GPA, MCAT score and race? We don’t know. But here is some data for the entire population of applicants.

For example, for applicants with an MCAT score between 24-26 and a GPA between 3.00 and 3.19, only 1 out of every 25 Asian applicants was accepted, compared to about one out of every 11 white applicants, one of out every three Hispanics, and more than half of black applicants with those same credentials.

I realize that medical schools practice affirmative action for Hispanic and black applicants, but I would not have expected the Asian/white acceptance rates to be so different. I wonder if the same is true for Williams applicants . . .
