This link shows which undergrad majors do the best on the LSAT

http://leiterlawschool.typepad.com/leiter/2008/04/which-undergrad.html

This link shows the same thing, but limits the results to majors with more than 2200 students taking the LSAT.

http://www.wsbe.unh.edu/node/13830

I think Math, Physics, Engineering, and Economics majors probably do well because better students and smarter students tend to gravitate toward those sub specialties. You may have 5000 sophomores choosing between business, accounting, economics, and finance. (I'm sure some are choosing between economics and history or philosophy, I don't know.)

As a business Major, I'm just happy I scored well above the average for business majors. Still, I'm somewhat surprised that business majors score under 150 on average. Is this because the best and brightest business minded folks focus on another, more specialized field?

I'm also not surprised at all that criminal justice is at the bottom of the barrel. I sincerely think you have to be stupid to choose that major.

Elite schools don't offer business or prelaw as a major.

Mid-tier schools offer business but not prelaw as a major.

SPS schools offer business and prelaw as majors.

"The impressive results for Physics, Math, Philosophy, and Economics must, one suspects, be credited in part to self-selection, but some surely reflects the intellectual rigor and demands of these courses of study."

lol no.. only the dumbest of the dumb physics/math majors take the LSAT.

Physics, Math, Econ and Philosophy students tend to score the highest on all standardized tests (LSAT, MCAT, GRE). The more vocational majors (health sciences, business, criminal justice, communications) tend to score the lowest.

Elite schools mostly don't have business as a major, so you have a naturally higher percentage of dumbs.

Really?

So the elite schools only offer Masters of Business Administration and not a BS/BA in Business Admin?

other than wharton, nyu, and a handful of other places, you can't get an undergrad degree in business at reasonably elite/solid schools.

I think business was a very easy major. At my school, the people who majored in business just didn't want to deal with accounting, finance, or econ.

If you look at people who get good finance jobs, they tend to be ivy econ undergrad, 2 years as an analyst, MBA. "Business" majors at TTTs think that they are going to be in the running for these jobs but they wind up working at a Chase branch or doing back-office shit in Jersey City.

Greetings,

Because business attracts intellectually non-curious, risk averse dumbs. No interests in life, so they pick the thing that sounds like it will net them money. Business = prole mommy and daddy told me to go to college, but I'm not smart enough for the "sure thing" professions like engineering.

Business also allows you to work more during the school year and finish faster than the "sure thing" degrees.

I worked full-time and finished my bachelors in 3 years. That's virtually impossible in a physics or engineering program.

1. The best schools don't have UG business programs

2. The best UG business school students major in finance not business admin

3. Most students study business in UG to go straight to work, not to law school,so the LSAT takers might be below-average as a representative group

most smart business majors self-select off the law school track and into something more lucrative and satisfying.

It's less that top schools don't offer business majors (plenty of decent ones do), but that business is the GO-TO major at true TTTs. At really shitty schools, people only want to do vocational majors, so the half that aren't doing welding do business.
