The figures are in three groups according to qualifications. The bars on the left were the chances of getting into medical school with a low MCAT score – that’s the Medical College Acceptance Text – of 24 to 26 and a GPA of only 3.2 to 3.39. Asians – the light blue bar – had only a 6 percent chance of being admitted, and whites, in gray, had an 8 percent chance. But Hispanics with low scores and grades – the dark blue bar – had a 31 percent chance and blacks had a 56 percent chance of getting in. Look at the results for the better qualified applicants. Being black or Hispanic is a huge advantage.
