Hi everyone, I graduated from college in '05 & will be applying to Psy.D. programs this Fall. It seems like most schools request 3 recommendations- and only 3. I'm thinking about whom I'd like to ask, and they're as follows (good relationships with all) : 1. My current supervisor (clinical research- definitely a yes) 2. 2 college professors from '04 and/or '05 (at least 1 is a yes, to discuss academic work, right?) 3. Supervisor at my previous job (non-profit case management- very clinically oriented) 4. Supervisor at summer internship '04 (NICHD- somewhat more research oriented) Sooo my dilemma is that I want to choose 3 very representative people, in order to form a comprehensive picture. I'd also like the recommendations to be well-written, and from well-respected people. I am really running the risk of sounding pretentious, but all the above people have Ph.D.s except for #3. She is only 2 years older than I am (has a B.A.), was an OK writer, & doesn't have much more experience in the field than I do. I may be getting caught up in the rumor that "hot-shot" recommendations are more valuable... FYI, current supervisor & professors have degrees in clinical psych & child development. Internship supervisor's degree is in Population Dynamics. Thoughts? What's the best combo of recommendations? Many thanks to everyone who's so supportive on this forum.
