Acceptance Rates

Background

Are you interested in learning more about the acceptance rates for various ethnicities in the USA?. Look no further as we have detailed the acceptance rates for medical schools across the country between 2008 and the current year. Here you can notice significant trends that are the opposite of the claimed effect.

As you can see between 2008 and 2015 there has been significant discrimination in the acceptance of students into medical school but it is not the groups you are thinking of being discriminated against. In the fact the most discriminated groups in regards to applying to medical school are Indians, Asians, Chinese and White European Americans. We here at About the MCAT do not advocate for discrimination of any kind, however, we must ask when did it become acceptable to discriminate against White Europeans and Asians?

Under the eight years of the presidency of Barack Obama the selection of candidates for medical school has repeatedly shown a racial biased against perceived "White" or "Indian" groups. In one famous case an Indian student applied using "black" as his ethnicity and found he was accepted into medical schools he normally was not when he represented his real ethnicity.
