Investigated factors influencing the decision to select clinical psychology students for a predoctoral internship program, using a path analysis procedure. Two clinical psychology faculty members rated 18 internship applications. Direct and indirect relationships of 3 preselection factors--academic preparation, clinical experience, and letter of reference--were examined. Results indicate that academic preparation and clinical experience operate as separate selection decisions in unique and complex ways.
