That's an interesting ranking.

Studentdoc has its own medical school rankings that combines in the "Mixed Rankings" competitiveness (MCAT and GPA), research (NIH funding), and cost/debt to the student. Our top 10 is quite different:

1 Washington University in St. Louis
2 Harvard University
3 Johns Hopkins University
4 Stanford University
4 Baylor College of Medicine
5 Mayo Medical School
6 Yale University
7 University of California--San Diego
8 University of California--San Francisco
9 University of Chicago
10 University of Pennsylvania

Ranking of medical schools are normally created base on Size, Focus, Research, Age. Size is divided into very large, large, medium and small. Focus is divided into Fully Comprehensive All faculty areas + medical school, Comprehensive All faculty areas, Focused faculty areas, Specialist faculty areas. Research quality is divided into Very High, high, moderate and limited or none. Age is divided into five parts Historic >= 100 years old, Mature >= 50 years old, Established > 25 years old, Young >= 10 years old, New < 10 years old.
