Philosophy Majors and the GRE 2011-2014


ETS has released data showing how well people perform on the GRE, sorted by intended area of graduate study. Once again, prospective philosophy graduate students do very well, earning the highest mean scores of students heading to any arts and humanities discipline in all three categories of the exam: verbal reasoning, quantitative reasoning, and analytical writing. In fact, prospective philosophy graduate students, on average, do better on the verbal reasoning and analytical writing sections than students heading towards any other area of study outside of the humanities, too. You can view the data here.
