The Industrial/Organizational (I/O) program maintains an average of 20 full-time students, with approximately 3-4 new students admitted each fall. Admissions is highly competitive — in the last five years, we have averaged about 70 student applications a year. Selection criteria include GRE scores (Verbal, Quantitative, Analytical), GPA (last 60 undergraduate hours), letters of recommendation, research experience and interests, and the applicant’s personal statement of professional/career goals. Over the past 3 years (2010–2012), students accepted into the program have averaged GRE (verbal + quantitative) scores of 1290 and a Jr/Sr undergraduate GPA of 3.66. Although no formal requirements exist regarding undergraduate course preparation, it is recommended that students applying to the I/O program have some introductory coursework in some of the following areas: statistics, experimental design, measurement and test construction, I/O psychology, and social psychology. Additional information about the program can be found at the SIOP page on I/O graduate training programs.
