Clinical Psych Doctoral Programs: Prestigious Faculty Member or Community College One That Knows Me Best?


Recommended Posts

Hi guys!


So, I'm having difficulty deciding what to do about my third LoR.  My first two are taken care of - one prestigious faculty member who supervises me clinically, another who is another prestigious faculty member I do research under.  I am having trouble allocating the third LoR - I have a very close, mentoring relationship with a past professor from community college.  I think she either has her PhD now, or has her PhD ABD (all but dissertation).  She would most definitely write me a dynamite letter that speaks about me as a person and a psychotherapist.  The other option is to ask a faculty member/professor I just started working with in a clinical fieldwork experience; she's another prominent faculty member of the college I attend, well beyond just obtaining a PhD.  But, she doesn't really know me that well, yet.  


So, my dilemma is: do I ask the less prestigious who will write me a phenomenal letter, or wait a month to build a rapport with this new faculty member who doesn't know me yet?
