Correlation/causation much? (Also, it could be about bias in favor of certain schools rather than against the major, as I doubt most elite undergrads offer a criminal justice major.)
Thank you for pointing out the correlation/causation conflation, for which some people here seem to be quite notorious.
One of the few studies on the association between major and LSAT score showed that Criminal Justice majors had a lower than median average LSAT score.
