LSAT® Scores of Economics Majors: The 2008--9 Class Update
Using 1994--95 and 2002--3 data, the author (1998, 2006) has found that economics majors scored well on the LSAT®. These results are frequently posted on university Web sites by economics (and other) departments. The author, who updates the previous studies by using current 2007--8 law school applicants for the 2008--9 class of students entering law school, finds that economics majors still perform at or near the top of all majors applying for law school. Economics majors (LSAT® score of 157.4; LSAC 2009) are tied for first (with philosophy) of the 12 largest disciplines (those with more than 1,900 students entering law school). Economics is tied for second (with philosophy/religion [157.4]) behind physics/math (160.0) in a set of 29 discipline groupings that the author created to yield groups of at least 450 students with similar majors.
