About the book:

Applicants are provided with manageable goals and the tools to achieve them. Among the tools are a monthly timetable for completing application tasks, concrete information about career options in psychology, descriptions of graduate specialty options, and detailed worksheets for selecting the best program matches. A Resource section provides a list of publications and organizations that are helpful in the various phases of applying. Applicants are taught how to define their training goals, what to look for in a program, and why. They learn what criteria admissions committees use to evaluate applicants, how to improve their qualifications, and how to best showcase their talents in personal essays, letters of recommendations, and preselection interviews. The costs of a graduate education and financial aid information specific to graduate students are also discussed. Members of special populations, such as women, ethnic minorities, gay and lesbian applicants, and applicants with disabilities will find resources and guidance particular to their needs.
