cafec0nleche Posted September 11, 2021 Share Posted September 11, 2021 (edited) Hi All, I am curious about recommendation letters, would be great to hear from folks admitted to programs already or those that are familiar with the doctorate application review process (PhD or PsyD). Did you use an academic reference? I completed my Masters in Clinical Psych in 2016 and then worked in my field for about four years before going to a graduate business program. I have two supervisors that can write to my clinical abilities, but I have lost touch with many faculty from my graduate level psychology program. However, I have one professor from business school that I took a couple of classes with that might be willing to attest to my academic abilities. Should I choose the academic business school reference as my third letter writer in order to have a purely academic reference, albeit outside of psychology? Or someone who supervised me and worked with me in a research capacity in my old department. At the time she was a research fellow, but has since completed her fellowship and become licensed. I'm not sure if it is critical to have an academic reference in the mix, and not sure if I should be concerned if they aren't in the field of psychology. Thank you!
