Till now, I only met Medic studying in Edinburgh via IMU twinning, not from Ivy league setara cos Edinburgh only get into the Top 20 for Year 2009 ( one year only), for Year 2010, they dropped to 40th position.
However last year they do sent students for dentistry in King's College ( ranked 22th ) cos not all UK Universities in the World Top 20 conduct dentistry courses. The same goes with Vet Medicine, only Cambridge & Edinburgh hv this course but not oxford, imperial & UCL and also pharmacy to Bath
If you look at UK Research Assessment Evaluation aka RAE 2008, certain uni are famous for certain course eg: King's for dentistry, Edinburgh for BioMedical ( they cloned Dolly the sheep here and are currently the Top 15 biomedical research centre in the world), and Bath for Pharmacy. Hence JPA do known to make exception by selecting scholars outside the Top 20 list at times.
