Ever wondered what you should (or should have!!) majored in college?
According to the Census Bureau’s 2010 American Community Survey, the majors that give you the best chance of reaching the 1 percent are pre-med, economics, biochemistry, zoology and, yes, biology, in that order.
Percentage OF MAJORS who are TOP 1%’ers
- Pre-Med: 11.8%
- Economics: 8.2%
- Biochemical Sciences: 7.2%
- Zoology: 6.9%
- Biology: 6.7%
- International Relations: 6.7%
- Political Science: 6.2%
- Physiology: 6%
- Art History and Criticism: 5.9%
- Chemistry: 5.7%
Wow! My major didn’t even crack the 1% 😉
I went into business, and I have friends who are dentists and lawyers who are crazy successful, so I think we should take the survey results with a grain of salt.. or two.
P.S. — English Lit: 3.8%
