Physics Central released their 2014 list of GRE scores by major. It’s certainly an interesting annual study they perform. However, we’re not completely sold on a causality between majors and GRE scores as some majors are perhaps more self selecting (those with strong quant scores are more likely to pursue math and engineering majors) and, as the article points out, it’s certainly feasible that certain majors are more heavily encouraged to pursue graduate school.
In conclusion, your choice of major is important in your graduate school chances but not because of its impact on your GRE score. And we steadfastly believe that GRE test prep is far more efficient than traditional undergraduate coursework if you’re seeking the highest score on the standardized test.
Best of luck with your applications!
Keep up with us on:
Can’t believe they wasted the time to make a study out of it. Self selection is the driver.
Are we supposed to be surprised that someone who is strong in quant is more likely to go into a quant related program and someone else who is stronger in verbal steers towards programs that require those skills?
