It’s always been tough to get into medical school, but in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic it got even tougher, with the number of student applications to many top schools increasing by more than 25 percent. As a result, admission rates have dropped to 2.6 percent or less. In a story published in Forbes, Kaiser Permanente Bernard J. Tyson School of Medicine experienced a higher ratio to available spots yielding an admission rate that was the lowest among leading medical schools at just 0.5 percent.
