Electronic copy available at: http://ssrn.com/abstract=1430654 LSAT Scores of Economics Majors: The 2008-2009 Class Update Abstract: Using 1994-1995 and 2002-2003 data, Nieswiadomy (1998, 2006) found that economics majors scored well on the LSAT. These results are frequently posted on university web sites by Economics and other departments. This note, which updates the prior studies using current 2007-2008 data for the 2008-2009 class of students entering law school, finds that Economics majors still perform at or near the top of all majors taking the test. Economics majors (LSAT score of 157.4) 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 are created to yield at least 450 students with similar majors. Key words: LSAT scores, economics majors, law school JEL code: A20

1 LSAT Scores of Economics Majors: The 2008-2009 Class Update Using 1994-1995 and 2002-2003 data, Nieswiadomy (1998, 2006) found that Economics majors scored well on the LSAT. In this article, utilizing current data for the 2007-2008 test takers entering law school in 2008-2009, I investigate whether Economics majors still perform at or near the top of all majors taking the test.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
