Why Major in Philosophy and Religion?

What can you do with a PAR major? You can do just about anything -- only better than most.

  • Philosophy majors rank first on the GRE (verbal and analytic) and LSAT, and they are second only to Math majors on the GMAT.
  • MCAT administrators only keep track of colleges, rather than individual units.  But according to their data, Humanities majors are second only to Math & Statistics majors.
  • Philosophy majors have the highest acceptance rate to: Medical School (50.1%) and Law School (82.4%)
