Bartleby, you have probably won the competition as you have the correct spelling of the name.

A strong case can be made for the former.

Ohio State is generally ranked pretty high among state schools for undergrad and they have a "criminology and criminal justice studies" major.

And then I'm pretty sure University of Pennsylvania offers a master's degree in criminology, as well as joint criminology MA/JD degree with the law school.

I don't think there's any difference between criminal justice and criminology.

Few/Some/many/most/all is a huge factor on the LSAT. Maybe that explains it.
