Yes, from this document the acceptance rate does not seem to be 90%, but it is twice as higher than that of on-black premeds, so the chances of being accepted for a black premed is two times higher compared to a non-black premed. Interestingly, the American data shows the breakdown of GPAs and MCAT scores, from which we can see that the chances of being admitted if you are black and with a high GPA is 90%+ That’s what I was referring to. If you take a non-black premed and a black premed with the equal GPAs and MCAT scores, who will get accepted faster?

Of course the acceptance rate of a stream created to remove barriers during the application process and increase representation is higher than that of the general stream… that is the whole point of a pathway like this. Would you ever expect the ACCESS or SWOMEN stream at Western, or Indigenous applicant stream at any school to have an acceptance rate that matches that of the general stream? You’re trying really hard to push this narrative of less qualified Black students stealing seats at Canadian medical schools using US data and it’s not making sense.
