Hillsdale College

The most recently available figures shows that the 75th percentile at Hillsdale is 33 for the ACT overall, and, I think, 31 for Math, 35 for Verbal. But Hillsdale's application pool soared from 2019 to 2020.

GRE Scores

"How to estimate your IQ based on your GRE or SAT scores" says a GRE of 1430 corresponds to a 15-SD IQ score (Wechsler test) of 145 (99.9th percentile of the general population). A GRE of 1390 corresponds to a 16-SD IQ score (Stanford-Binet test) of 145 (99.8th percentile of the general population).

"Old and New GRE Comparison Tool" says a GRE of 1440 from equal verbal (new test 168) and math (new test 156) is 98th percentile verbal, 74th percentile math. A GRE of 1400 from equal verbal and math is 97th percentile verbal, 69th percentile math. A score of 1440 from top 800 for math (new test 166) and 640 for verbal (new test 162) is 90th percentile verbal, 94th percentile math.

Average GRE scores by graduate field 2015-2018 are:

  • Biology 153 verbal, 154 math (75,000)
  • Math 153, 163 (24,000)
  • Physics 156, 162 (14,000)
  • Electrical Engineering 148, 159 (49,000)
  • Materials Engineering 153, 162 (5,000)
  • Mechanical Engineering 149, 159 (35,000)
  • Economics 154, 160 (19,000)
  • History 156, 149 (8,000)
  • Philosophy 159, 154 (3,000)
  • Education 151, 148 (38,000)

What shocks me here are the numbers of test takers in differen fields. So few economists! So many engineers! So few in Education! I think this must include M.S. programs, and Education must have some other test it uses too. Still, how is it there are almost double the number of Math test takers as Economics?
