Business, Law, and Medicine

Can physics, biophysics, or astronomy be a path to a professional school, such as Business, Law or Medicine? The answer is a resounding "yes". Professional schools want people who can think. A student's educational path is of secondary importance. People with a strong background in physics can think. Here is the proof:

  • Physics majors and Mathematics majors have had the highest average scores on the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) for business school. [Based on data from 2006-11 and 2014]
  • Physics majors and Mathematics majors have had the highest scores on average on the Law School Admissions Test (LSAT). [Based upon data from 1991-92, 1994-95, and 2003-04, and 2007-2008, and 2009, and 2012]
