grad29 Posted August 6, 2015 Share Posted August 6, 2015 Here are my instructions: A Writing Sample: preferably of a psychological nature such as a summary of literature, research paper, psychological reports, etc. It must be writing using APA format and be your own work. Please include a note describing the sample (PDF). None of the other 8 programs I'm applying to ask for a writing sample, so I don't have to meet anyone else's requirements. What would be an appropriate length for the actual paper, excluding title page, abstract, references, etc...? 5 pages? 10 pages? 15 pages? 20 pages? Also, since this is a school psychology program I'm applying to, I felt it would make sense to do something related to education. The topic I'm planning on doing it on is "what are some of the barriers students face to learning in public education?". As this is a broad topic, I may narrow it down to "what are the reasons why students drop out of school?". I feel like the former topic would include some of the later and I feel like the later topic there is plenty to write about. Thoughts? Thanks!
