Hi everyone! I'll be reapplying (hopefully for the last time) to PhD programs in clinical psychology this upcoming cycle. I've spent the last few years getting research and some clinical experience to make myself a more competitive applicant since I had no idea what I was doing the first time I applied. Since I'm in the process of preparing my overall application cycle, I do have a few questions: 1) Does the education of a letter writer ever factor into the application? I'm probably over thinking this, but one of my previous research supervisors received his education from a school that is not well regarded on these forums (minimal funding, poor match rates, etc). I planned on using him as a letter writer because he oversaw some of my independent research projects and I believe that he could really speak to my abilities as a researcher and as a clinician. 2) On the CV, is it best to separate clinical and research experience or leave them all under a "professional experience" heading? A couple of my sites provided combined clinical/research experience, while some only provided one or the other. I'm inclined to keep them separate, but I also don't want it to look like I'm fluffing my resume by double listing some of my sites. Thanks!
