Admission Letter / December 8, 2018 / Malinda Cobb
If you have majored in psychology while pursuing under-graduation and taken upper-level courses in the area of psychology then it is definitely a plus point. However it is not essential for getting admission. An undergraduate with solid training in natural sciences logic and mathematics can also act as a great advantage even if you have not majored in psychology. Almost every good psychology school expects their applying candidate to have good marks in their undergraduate courses especially in last two years. Your marks actually play a substantial role for potential supervisors to make their decisions.
Preparing carefully for the GRE (Graduate Record Exam) is another part to be focused. Studying and taking practice tests can help a lot. A good score in this exam will demonstrate your strong analytic quantitative and verbal abilities. This may include the subject exam in psychology. Although many schools do not ask for psychology exam test but many schools do so doing it and doing well can help. Application must be prepared carefully specifically with concern to written statements of your research interests. If you have planned for admission in graduate school of psychology make sure you show your writing skills well. It is essential for your application to pass as poor writing will drop your chances of being admitted.
Over the years I have written letters for business associates. However my favorites to write are for young students who are applying for colleges scholarships or their first job. These are personal reference letters and I love getting the chance to sit with these young adults and talk about their futures and aspirations. These conversations help me in writing letters that are relevant meaningful and honest. As a result I have become the first stop for many of my four children s friends who are in need of a letter of recommendation. A letter of recommendation should be one of the easiest pieces of correspondence to compose.
