Complete List of Graduate and Professional School Acceptances
The list below indicates institutions to which graduates have been admitted in the past 10 years. Several have received "outstanding student" awards in their professional programs and/or were ranked at the top of their class, and many are in positions of leadership in the scientific/medical community. In recent years 70% of the students who applied to medical school were accepted. About 60% of Biology Department graduates go on to graduate programs (such as MD, PhD, DVM, DDS). Linfield graduates are now on the faculty of such institutions as: Oregon Health Sciences University, Bowdoin College, Lawrence College, Ohio State University, and Harvard University.
