Hey, I was wondering if anyone knew how to figure out your rank (like, you're in the top x% of your class.) I wanted to apply to the Psi Chi, honor society in psychology and one of the requirements is to be in the top 35% of your class and I don't particularly want to pay the $55 application fee just to find out that I'm not qualified.

Thanks in advance.

As the previous President of Psi Chi at SFSU, I can tell you that its a National requirement. Our School looks at your GPA and you have to have held at least a 3.0-3.2 your entire GPA every semester at state and at any college you have attended.

Okay. Well, I guess that settles that, then. I still have no idea HOW you see where you rank amongst your class, but I guess I wouldn't qualify anyway seeing as I meet the 3.0 minimum cumulative GPA now, but I didn't throughout my entire time at SFSU. The website is not very explicit in laying out that requirement, it just says "Undergraduates who are elected must have a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0 and rank in the upper 35% of their class (sophomore, junior, senior) in general scholarship. Furthermore, the applicant must have a minimum GPA in psychology courses of 3.0. Psi Chi accepts the standard university policy regarding grades." So I thought I'd be okay on the GPA front and the only thing that might kill me was my ranking. At least I saved $55, I guess. Thanks.

If your cumulative GPA is above 3.0 you should be fine. You can always contact a member in the current cabinet, I would suggest the President, and see if they can take a look to see if you qualify before you actually apply (so you dont waste money). Don't go through the psych dept though, I suggest contacting Psi Chi (SFSU chapter) directly.

Do you have any idea how I might get in contact with them? I tried the email address listed on the site but that was a week ago and I still haven't heard back from them.
