12. Physics Students Tend to Perform Well Academically

SAT scores for high school physics takers (1992):

math 559 (all others students 444)

verbal 480 (all others students 406)

GRE scores for physics bachelors recipients (1993):

Math 724 (all other bachelors 599)

Verbal 589 (all other bachelors 554)

Analytic 663 (all other bachelors 621)

And this despite the fact that 48% of physics bachelors,

but only 8% of other bachelors, take the GRE’s

14. Even Further Reinforcing the Bias,

Physics Study Tends to Be a Closed Club.

There are few ways into the pipeline if you

didn’t enter at the beginning.

% of 1995 physics bachelors who took:

High school physics: 92% (vs. 26% for all students)

AP physics where available: 69% (vs. 2% for all students)

% of 2001 physics graduate students whose

undergrad major was physics: 88%
