there were several noteworthy trends. Namely, scales 3 (Hy; r = -.254, n =74, p = .029)

and 8 (Sc; r = -.273, n = 74, p = .019) of the MMPI-2 and GPA demonstrated a trend as

well as GPA and scale L (-.291, n = 74, p = .012) of the MMPI-2 validity scales. Since

these correlations were not significant after Bonferroni corrections, the hypothesis that

there is a correlation between GPA and the personality profiles of students of a seminary

counselor education program as assessed by the MMPI-2 clinical and validity scales and

the NEO PI-R domain scales is not supported. The data failed to support this hypothesis.

Thus, the null hypothesis was retained.

Licensure Acquisition

A point-biserial correlation analysis was performed with the sample of 68

questionnaire respondents (the respondents of the clinical track) to determine the

relationship that the scores of the MMPI-2 clinical and validity scales and NEO PI-R

domain scales have with a graduate’s licensure acquisition. The sample size was 68

because the other respondents to the questionnaire completed the nonclinical track of the

Midwest Pastoral Counseling Program and were not eligible for licensure. Results of this

analysis are found in Table 2. License acquisition showed no statistically significant

correlation (p =.002) with the NEO PI-R domain scales. Also, after Bonferroni

adjustments were made there were no significant correlations between the MMPI-2 and

licensure acquisition; however, there were two noteworthy trends. Specifically, licensure

acquisition and scale 1 (Hs; r = .317, n = 68, p = .008) of the MMPI-2 demonstrated a
