Statistics for Psychology
Each application season we receive numerous questions about the specifics of what the program desires regarding scores, experience, grades, etc.
In order to answer some of those questions this page attempts to give a broad picture over time of what sorts of skills and capabilities our incoming cohort possesses, averaged over the last five years.
None of these scores are absolute cut-offs; we also want applicants to consider that our committees are looking at the whole picture of an applicant, not any one particular facet of your application.
These figures below represent the most recent numbers of what the department submits to the APA Graduate Study each Spring. The APA Graduate Study is a tool for people looking at graduate schools to apply to as a way to assess what graduate programs fit their goals.
