# 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
