Music majors are better readers & more successful medical school applicants!
A study of 7,500 university students revealed that music majors scored the highest reading scores among all majors including English, biology, chemistry and math.
Physician and biologist Lewis Thomas studied the undergraduate majors of medical school applicants. He found that 66% of music majors who applied to med school were admitted, the highest percentage of any group. Forty-four percent (44%) of biochemistry majors were admitted.
