Claims this post at Physics Central. According to this pdf put out by ETS, the mean for philosophy majors is 160 for the verbal and 153 for the quantitative, for a total of 313. Physicists top everyone with a mean of 317: 156 for the verbal and 161 for the quantitative. Philosophers win the analytical writing section, with a mean of 4.4.
