A is redundant, male medical students are by definition enrolled in medical school

I would say B), short and concise.

wow what a logic. i never thought that. gr8.

conciseness is tested on the GMAT. Sometimes you might have 2 or 3 choices that are 100% grammatically correct; you have to choose the one that is the most economical with words.

thanks

i just noticed a very subtle difference.

Choice B has an ellipsis.
as many female [students] as male students are currently enrolled in medical school

Had Choice B looked like the sentence below, it would change the comparison/meaning of a sentence.
as many femaleS as male students are currently enrolled in medical school

I think the correct answer is "e" as the number can not be equivalent to another number it can only be equal to other number

It came down to A and B. Would go with B since A just repeats the word medical too many times (which is not necessary).
