College can be a supremely impactful time in one's life; it's a time for individual progress and development. Pupils start to ascertain what they are capable of and develop many of the necessary skills to become a prosperous member of society. But learning goes far beyond a classroom environment - the campus dialogue, the wild anecdote learned from an eccentric professor, the exposure to a different frame of reference. As such, attending a diverse college vastly improves what you gain from your time spent in college.
Pre-Law Studies is a less ethnically diverse major than average*. 77% of the United States' Pre-Law Studies majors are white students, followed by black students (10%), latino students (9%), and students of other races**(2%).

In addition, Pre-Law Studies is diverse when it comes to sex, with 51% of students majoring in Pre-Law Studies identifying as women. The most gender balanced school in the top 100 is Liberty University in Lynchburg, VA.
Another substantial type of diversity is economic diversity.

Ball State University is the most fiscally diverse college in the top 100.
