Why do that? Why make fun of or belittle the accomplishment of a bunch of our student athletes?
God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
The courage to change the things I can,
And the wisdom to know the difference.

It was always interesting to read the majors of players when Bart Miller was on the team.

Have we had an engineering major on the team since?

John Mueller majored in computer engineering, IIRC.

Go off slightly on a tangent, one of my all time favorite anecdotes was when my neighbors (UW-Extension alums/Badger fans) were convinced Sam Dekker would not turn pro after his JR year because he was going to come back to earn his degree.  Curious as to what that degree would be, I looked up his official profile page which listed his major as "undecided."  I said, "Well, unless he's coming back to earn a degree in Undecided Studies, he's going pro."

Since colleges won't let players list Basketball Studies as a major, I do have to respect Dekker's honesty in listing his field of study.

MU had a similar situation where they didn't update player majors in their online bios and several upperclassmen were still listed as undecided. I believe it was the Domers' chant of "What's your major?" that prompted the athletic office to get on that.

Pre-med defines just about anyone with a near-science degree. When I worked in a hospital, every student said "I'm Pre-Med". The number that actually went on to become "Med" was about 2%. The world is full of pre-Med majors. It's a completely meaningless and throwaway phrase. When someone says they are Pre-Med, I actually lose respect for them rather than gain it.

(EDIT: And I noted the sarcasm, I just hate it when I hear that term ;D )

Pretty true these days.  Most law schools really don't care what classes you took undergrad - they're mostly interested in diverse backgrounds, good grades and good LSATs.  Med schools require science and math prerequisites, but you could still turn that into plenty of majors.

My son dual majored in religious studies (more like a philosophy major) and linguistics while completing his pre-med requirements.

He said he's be taking nothing but medical/science related things once he got into med school and wanted to do something that interested him as an undergrad. He also played lead guitar in one of the top local bands as an undergrad.

In his med school interviews he was told more times than not that it was so nice to see someone who wasn't a chem or bio major  and who could carry on an intelligent conversation in something other than the sciences. He had the grades and a great MCAT but the diverse majors and his playing in a band while doing all the other things really worked in his favor and got him into a top 10 Med school.

Man I cannot tell you how many times I have told college kids to do something different than the pack.  Or apply to a grad / professional school where you are going to be more unique.  That's what schools want.  Your son's experience confirms that.

My next door neighbor's kid played basketball on scholly at a Big Ten school and was an engineering major. Graduated a couple of years ago, and in 4 years.

That is so true. I remember when he was applying to undergrad in 2003, Yale admission reps said that they could fill their classes five times over with 4.0/ 1580-1600 SAT kids but that would make for a very boring class. They said over and over that they wanted "interesting" kids to make up their incoming class. They also emphasized that they put a great deal of weight on the essays and a personal interview.

In his application, he wrote several VERY "edgy" and different essays, one was a very funny play on his name and the other was about how playing Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon while simultaneously watching The Wizard of Oz synchronize to  create a whole other viewing experience. In his admission letter the Dean of Admissions hand-wrote a note saying how the entire admissions team loved his essays when they were read and were looking forward to meeting him.

These days you HAVE to do something to stand out from the pack especially when applying to top tier schools.

David Diggs was also an engineering major.

A professor told one of my classes he had Tony Smith in class previously.  I don't know if he graduated with an Engineering degree.

Tony smith was an engineering major, but then never graduated until recently.  I would assume it is in engineering but do nit know for sure

That may be your experience, but I knew at least 10 Pre-med students at MU and they all were accepted to Medical School. You see MU still had a Medical School my freshman and Sophmore years and they actually had a Pre-med program.

Actually, I read an article* a couple years ago that was making the case that a lot of schools actively disfavor "prelaw" majors (and criminal justice, by the way).  It is not considered an academically rigorous course of study, so it is looked down upon by law schools.  Good grades are important, as you state, but good grades in an easy major aren't really that helpful.  Also, data shows that it's right at the bottom of the list for performance on the LSAT.  But you're correct:  good grades (in a rigorous program), good LSAT and diversity are all key.
