Is Psychology GRE helpful for applying to M.S.W programs?


Recommended Posts

I'm planning on applying to Masters in Social Work programs as a career change from software engineering (and a BS in Physics). I took about 5 classes in Brain and Cognitive Sciences in undergrad, and since then I have some work/volunteer experience in social work/counseling. 

Do you think it would be helpful for my application to take the psychology subject GRE? I eventually want to become a LCSW so I do want to learn more about the counseling and psychology side of social work. Thanks for your help!

I don't think it would be worth the effort. It isn't a requirement, and a number of MSW programs don't even require the general GRE exam on their application.

I would focus on writing strong application essays instead.
