The key word is 'at least.'
There are something like 10 or 20 spots to transfer into...unfortunately, you typically need a higher average to get into programs such as Health Sci or Kin after first year. The number of applicants are reduced drastically, but so have the number of available slots.

A lot of bad things spread about the program too...such as the fact that it's so specialized, meaning if you fail to get into medicine you're at a disadvantage for any other field.
Not to mention, many people are discouraged by there being so few available openings...I dunno how big a role that plays, but you're right, I definitely know some bitter people, haha.
