Admission to Graduate Programs (steps to consider)
Know your program: What is it that this program has
that makes you want to
go there? Research your program as much as you can.
How to finance your education: Look into
and research/ teaching assistantships.
APA accreditation: The American
Psychological Association accredits
programs that meet acceptable professional training standards.
When to apply: Schools vary in their
deadlines, although most rage from
January 1 through February 15.
Number of applications to submit: It
depends,because there is no magic figure for number of programs to apply. You can
apply to 1 program, and
get accepted, but you can also apply to 20, and not get accepted...
