EMU economics experience
"Having an econ background has been invaluable for law school. Not only do economics students score better on the Law School Admissions Test (LSAT), but virtually all law professors implement law and economics into their classes. In my first year, we've looked at production functions, externalities and a massive amount of cost-benefit analysis. People often joke that being a lawyer is the best job you can get without knowing math, but in truth, having even an introductory background in math from econ helps a lot with understanding a lot of areas of law, such as calculating damages. Policy oriented econ classes have also given me a head start on topics such as risk-wage premium and Quality Life Years. I am also doing research with a professor whose background was in statistics, so a class like econometrics has been useful to allow me to understand the statistical terms we use."
"The great thing about economics is that it's more than just a set of facts; it's a way of thinking. The tools you learn through economics can be applied to virtually any problem that you face."
