Can I still get into a Master’s of Counseling Psychology program with these scores?

Question by Andrea: Can I still get into a Master’s of Counseling Psychology program with these scores?
I am trying to get into the Arizona State University Master’s of Counseling program or Counseling PHD program. I took the GRE today and got a 430 in Verbal and a 460 in Quantitative. I have a 4.0 Jr/Sr GPA and a 3.4 Cumulative GPA. Do I still have a chance of getting into these programs with these (bad) GRE scores? =/

Some schools require a certain score, I know most it is 1000. Your GPA is fair to above average. I think you should speak with the admissions counselor.

What do you think? Answer below!

    A lot of psych grad programs I’ve looked into require at least 3.0 GPA (sometimes higher) and GRE scores. However, I have found that if your GPA is below the minimum requirement than you must have a cumulative GRE score of 1000, for some of the more lenient schools. I would go out on a limb to say you shouldn’t have to worry, but we all know, psych programs are extremely competitive, especially counseling since they’re requirements aren’t as high as clinical programs. Have some good letters of rec and personal statement and your chances are probably going to be great.
