Fun ...

This chart comes from Mark Perry at Carpe Diem. It shows GRE scores by graduate field, ranked by the total score. Economics 4th, business 22nd.

Bryan Caplan asks Are Economists As Smart as They Think They Are? And given the chart above he answers,
Probably even smarter - only physics, math, and c.s. have higher average GRE scores. We even beat electrical engineers. Sorry, dad, but facts are facts. :-)
But he goes on to note that the fact that economists are smart is much less important that the fact that smart people think like economists (doc).
