This annual study contains descriptive statistics on applicants to the 1976--77 freshman classes of U.S. medical schools. In contrast to the growth rates of the early 1970s, the total number of applicants declined slightly for the second successive year. However, comparisons with past applicant pools show a continued increase in the annual number of women applying and a modest increment over the previous year in applicants from minority groups. For the first time in the annual series the 1976--77 study includes data on applicants' size of hometown and summarizes information collected on marital status, country of citizenship, and undergraduate degree level.
