One other thought - money should not be an issue if you get over the admissions hurdle. An applicant would want to be sure that he/she would apply to a graduate school within that five-year period.
We only admit students we can support (at a fairly meager level) once they are here. Application Application fee Unofficial GRE scores 3 letters of recommendation Unofficial transcripts from previous schools There are no particular Psychology course requirements, but having experience will make your application better. If it is longer than five years, scores are not reportable and the applicant would need to retake the examination.
The Graduate Committee relies heavily on the letters of recommendation, so take these seriously.
You do not have to have a background in Psychology in order to apply.
Most students are not aware of the fact that graduate programs do not admit an unlimited number of students each year.
Rather, only 2 to 4 students are offered admission for a given program within the department each year.You could take some Psychology courses but better than that you could work in a research lab for a year or so.This is the type of experience the review committee looks for.Required score = 600 Required score = 600 paper-based; 250 computer-based. Admitted students must take VA English Language Proficiency Exam upon arrival.You should get people that know you, your coursework, and/or lab work well to write letters of recommendation on your behalf, like a past advisor, lecturer, etc.If your first language is not English, you will be required to submit a TOEFL test score.However, if you have or will have received an undergraduate degree from an institution where English is the primary language of instruction, you do not need to submit the TOEFL.If other applicants' ranked higher than you in these categories, then they were selected for an interview.Please do not be misled, there are several students who do not receive offers of admission that we would love to admit into our program (and you may be one of these).No, please do not call the Graduate School to see if your application is complete.They are so busy that they will just transfer you to the department you applied that probably will not be able to tell you anything until after February 15. If you applied within the last 2 years, just send a letter with your application stating that you are reapplying and would like to use certain documents (tell us what they are) from your previous application.
