Some quick background “lingo”
  • Senior survey covers the AY2010-11:
    • Aug 2010, Dec 2010 and May 2011 ( the largest cohort)
  • At WU, students have a “prime” school where they complete their “prime” major
    • Students may select a second major (or minor) in their prime school or in another school
      • Examples:
        • ArtSci student, majoring in Economics (prime) with a second major in Finance (in the Olin School of Business)
        • ArtSci pre-med (e.g., Bio or Chem – prime) student with second major in Economics
        • BSBA student with a second major in Economics (ArtSci)
  • Here: “Econ major” = prime + second
