Default Strong LOR

If u can manage a strong LOR, the duration should not matter. But 2 weeks is a not enough for you to show it as the sole experience. If u have already had several other observerships in Psych, this one can add some experience.

So if u have no other psych observerships, then i would not count on it to help u out.
