MCAT, LSAT and Physics Bachelor's. Focus On
Statistical Research Center of the American Institute of Physics
Physics majors pursue a wide variety of career paths, many of which are not what you might expect. Some pursue advanced training by applying to graduate schools, medical schools, or law schools. The Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT) and Law School Admission Test (LSAT) data in this report show that the physics majors who applied to either medical schools or law schools in the 2012 academic year scored quite well as a group on their admission tests. Although one should choose a major based on personal interests and goals, these data show that physics can be an excellent entry degree for programs outside of physics.
