Rosemead Graduate School of Psychology Catalog: 1973-1974


As in most graduate programs in psychology, competition for ad­ mission is keen and enrollment is limited. In order to be admitted to full graduate standing the applicant must comply with the following: (1) Possess a baccalaureate degree from an accredited college or university with an average grade of at least "B" for the junior and senior years. (2) Present an undergraduate program including at least 18 semes­ ter hours of credit in psychology, which must include at least one course each in general psychology, statistical methods, Ab­ normal Psychology, Theories of Personality, and Learning. (3) Submit scores on the aptitude tests and the psychology advanced test of the Graduate Record Examination. This test is adminis- tered under the auspices of the Educational Testing Service. Information regarding testing dates and locations may be obtained by writing to the Educational Testing Service, Box 955, Prince­ ton, New Jersey 08540. (4) Submit results of the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inven­ tory and the Strong Vocational Interest Blank. These tests may be taken at most college testing services or from a licensed psychologist in clinic or private practice. (5) Submit five letters of recommendation on forms supplied by the graduate school. Three of these are academic references and two are character references. (6) Appear for a personal interview with the admissions committee or its area representative. Since the doctoral programs are tailored toward professional application, it is important that students possess the personality strengths and character to deal effectively in a variety of interpersonal and professional rela­ tionships. Personal as well as academic screening avoids the pitfalls of allowing a student to pursue a course of study in preparation for a vocation which is potentially unsuited to his personality. 19
