June 28, 2017


The highest-paid students from a general-purpose university are, unsurprisingly, those who attended the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, who have a mean income in their early 30s of $98,500 (although the median MIT parents earn $141,000, so even MIT is a downward proposition in the short run). http://takimag.com/article/alma_mater_blotter_steve_sailer/print#ixzz4lLKJi64a

“China’s poorest beat our (UK) best pupils”

“Children of factory workers and cleaners in Far East achieve better exam results than offspring of British lawyers and doctors, says OECD.

“British schoolchildren are lagging so far behind their peers in the Far East that even pupils from wealthy backgrounds are now performing worse in exams than the poorest students in China, an international study shows.

    The statistics

    black: largest group acceptees had a MCAT score of 24-26, with a total of 4,446 total Black acceptees (36.2%) 
    white: 30-32. In all, there were 35,789 White acceptees (45%). 
    During the 2015-2016 application cycle, the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) reports that there were 12, 289 Black/ African-American applicants to U.S. medical schools. The highest number of acceptees had a MCAT score of 24-26, with a total of 4,446 total Black acceptees (36.2%) to medical school. Comparatively, there were 79,260 White applicants to U.S. medical schools, with the highest number of acceptees (12, 033) having a score of 30-32. In all, there were 35,789 White acceptees (45%). For the academic year 2014-2015, there were 1,061 Black graduates versus 10, 992 White graduates out of a total 18,705 graduates. Per reports, acceptance by gender is nearly 50/50.
    What does this mean?
    Simply put: it’s not other races hindering your acceptance to medical school, as it appears the competition lies with applicants of your own race. 

    On the other hand this chart is floating around shows that acceptance rate for the same MCAT is far higher for blacks at the same test score as most blacks scored lower than most whites.
