Prep for Graduate School

Law School

First, it should be pointed out that most law schools do not require that you major in Pre-Law.  If you major in English, say, or Philosophy, you’ll still be on the right track. Crucial to Pre-Law are critical reading, writing, and thinking skills. After all, as a lawyer, your job will require drafting cogent arguments and solutions to problems, then communicating those arguments and solutions effectively to persuade and convince a judge or jury. In our Pre-Law Cluster, you take courses dealing with crime, government, and international issues, but most of your study will consist of courses in the humanities and social sciences. Your education will give you perspectives on human nature, skills in oral and written communication, and the knowledge you’ll need to be a careful and creative thinker.​

Medical School

The percentage of non-science majors accepted into medical school fits well with the assertion of the need for graduates to have a broad breadth of knowledge. Students with a strong background and success in the sciences need not necessarily major in the sciences to get accepted into medical school. The percentage of applicants accepted to medical school among non-science majors was 45.5 percent, only slightly lower than the percentage among science majors and interdisciplinary majors. Of the non-science majors, the field of anthropology was the field with the highest acceptance rate at 53.5 percent. History, English, economics, and philosophy were also well-represented among the non-science majors at a rate of 50 percent or better.
