기사 요약: 의대 쏠림 현상을 분석하고 대책의 중요성을 살펴본다.
 Last week, the college entrance exam academy Jongno Hagwon released its analysis of the state’s official education data that showed 2,131 students in the past five years have dropped out of Seoul National University, Korea University and Yonsei University, the top three most prestigious tertiary education institutes in South Korea.
*drop out: 탈퇴하다, 퇴거하다
*prestigious: 명망 있는, 일류의
*tertiary: 제 3의, 고등교육기관
 According to other data compiled by SNU and released in May, 6.2 percent of the school’s 3,606 freshmen this year took a leave of absence immediately after enrolling.
*compile: 엮다, 편집하다
*enroll: 입학시키다, 등록하다
 Private education experts believe that such a phenomenon is caused by students who, after being accepted at top universities, prepare to take the college entrance exam again.
*private education: 사교육
 “A leave of absence right after entering SNU, the top Korean school, appears to be an attempt to get admitted to colleges of medicine, dentistry, or oriental medicine, which require higher grades,” said Lee Man-ki of the Uway Educational Assessment Research Institute.
*get admitted to: 입소하다
