For this study of attitudes surrounding premedical education, the authors examined the consequences of competitive pressure for admission to medical school. Responses of premedical and other students were compared on a number of topics including: self-descriptions, premedical stereotypes, occupational values, attitudes toward various occupations, and perceptions of college pressures. Differences are reported for premedical subgroups, including science and nonscience majors, men and women, and minority group members and others.
