The statistical data presented in the following charts depicts the Cornell alumni and students who applied to either osteopathic or allopathic medical schools during the last decade. The data sources are the American Medical College Application Service and the American Association of Colleges of Osteopathic Medical Application. 

The acceptance of Cornell students and graduates into medical school is substantially higher than the national average of 41.2%. Our acceptance rate of 79.2% from 2008-2014 indicates that Cornell students are not only well prepared but highly competitive for medical school admittance.   

Our calculated acceptance rate includes (a) both Cornell students admitted as college seniors as well as those who were admitted post-Cornell graduation and (b) all Cornell students who pursued admission to medical school, not just those who were endorsed by a Pre-Medical Advisory Committee as can be the practice at some institutions.

We take pride in working with every student to help them pursue their goals in health-related fields.  This includes helping them obtain rich research experiences, meaningful internships, and campus co-curricular experiences which help enhance their preparation for and deepen their commitment to a career in health care.
