Best Colleges for Black Medical School Applicants

Black medical school applicants will definitely want to review the schools listed on this page. This page shows the undergraduate colleges/universities producing the highest number of African-American medical school applicants.

For each institution there is the total number of Black premedical students who applied to medical school each academic year, along with their percentage out of all premed students at a particular college/university. The percentage is used so you can put the number of Black students into perspective into regards to the total number of premedical students at a particular school and this allows for easier comparison between colleges/universities.

I want to remind you this listing should not be the sole factor in deciding where to attend college, there are a number of factors you will want to consider when applying to college.

For each undergraduate institution listed there is the total number of Black medical school applicants along with their percentage out of all students who are applying to medical school from the particular undergraduate institution:
