Top 10 Medical Schools: Most Applications

A list has been published by US News, ranking schools according to those which receive the most applications. Ironically, many premed students perceive some of these schools to be “safeties” and thus more students apply to them, making the competition to be admitted fierce–much more stringent than most people realize. Overall, 53,029 people applied to medical school in that application cycle.

Lake Erie College of Osteopathic medicine tops the list with 16,187 applicants. The schools in the top 10 for volume of applications in the 2016 cycle are:

1. Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine

2. Georgetown

3. George Washington


5. Drexel

6. Western University of Health Sciences

7. Thomas Jefferson

8. Brown

9. Temple

10. New York Medical College
