Which undergraduate majors score the highest on LSAT?

October 28th, 2013

These numbers are somewhat dated (from 2007), but show that physics/math and economics majors do the best on the LSAT with an average of 160 and 157.4. Who does the worst? Criminal Justice and Pre-Law, with averages of 148.3 and 146. I never quite got what the point of Pre-Law was anyway, but it seems that their graduates are failing to accomplish what they set out to do–do well on the LSAT, and directly, are ┬áless likely to get into the law school of their choice (tough with a 148). Interesting that political science is much lower with 153, while philosophy is quite high at 157.4
