Although the medical school attrition rate is only approximately 3 percent, students from lower socioeconomic backgrounds, even those with higher MCAT scores, are more likely to withdraw or be dismissed in the first two years of medical school. This negatively impacts a medical school’s ability to maintain a diverse medical student body, since only 15 percent of medical students are from lower socioeconomic backgrounds.
