The probability that a conservative Christian applicant would be admitted to a clinical psychology graduate program was assessed. A mock application to graduate school was mailed to profesors of clinical psychology. Results indicated that subjects were more likely to admit an applicant who made no mention of religion than they were to admit an otherwise identical applicant who was identified as an evangelical fundamentalist Christian. Implications of these findings are discussed and future research is proposed.
