What determines how popular a medical school is? It isn't the number of friends the school has, or how often it is invited to parties. It is actually determined by the yield rate. But what is that?

A school's yield is the percentage of admitted students who opt to enroll in the program. At Kansas, 176—or 82.2 percent—of the 214 accepted students chose to attend the school in the academic year beginning in 2010, narrowly edging out the University of Nevada—Reno School of Medicine, where 62 students, or 81.6 percent of the 76 accepted, enrolled last year.
