We analyzed the results of consecutive medical school interviews at the University of Toronto between 2004 and 2009… Overall, those interviewed on rainy days received about a 1% lower score than those interviewed on sunny days… The difference in scores was equivalent to about a 10% lower total mark on the Medical College Admission Test.
