acceptance posted on TGC. Someone claim it.
It does say that they contacted the department personally and were notified in a reply email, though, so I don't think it's reason to worry for those of us still waiting on Columbia. It is reason to check our emails every ten minutes starting tomorrow morning, though!

under this thread could people post the schools to which they are accepted but are going to decline the offer of admission.

It's funny. Existing philosophers get paid for training more philosophers, who in turn hope to train more philosophers. The only product philosophers produce is philosophers.



and philosophy?
Alright. It looks like I missed the UCLA boat and I am overcome with a desire to end this silly game. ;)
My question is, who do I email? Im guessing it would be Professor Kelsey for UCLA, although maybe it would be a little weird considering the website doesnt mention that he is the director of admissions. (maybe not?)

Maybe people could list the DGA's at other schools.
Anyone know the admission director at Columbia?
Just wanted to let those who are wait listed at Vanderbilt know that I have declined my offer of admission. It's a wonderful program with great faculty. Good luck!
I have reason to believe that there are recruiters reading this board and using it to milk information about accepted students (anonymously, of course). Wonder if anyone else has similar evidence. (Obviously, I can't disclose mine.)
I dont see why any of the information on here would be all that useful to the members of adcoms,.

I am finding this situation very disheartening now.
I am still waiting for 8 more rejections (I hope I am being pessimistic rather than realistic, but somehow doubt it).
It's very difficult to plan for the future when there is uncertainty still involved. I find it very frustrating that admissions committees delay rejection so considerably. A nicely phrased mass email to rejectees would be perfectly acceptable - and if they really wanted to sugar coat it post facto, then they can follow up themselves later. But give us certainty! It is what Philosophers strove for since Descartes (and then mostly gave up on) but if we can have it in this, then let us have it.
If I don't get in, I need to start looking for jobs - but I don't want to start interviewing at places and not be able to accept offers on the day.
Anyone else getting similarly frustrated?

My solution is to read the ancient Stoics.
I just talked to Karen Sites today, and she said that Boulder will send out its decisions for its MA program on Friday. Not sure if this means e-mail or post. Either way, they're coming soon.
Probably email, that's what they did last year.

So this is kind of odd. I just noticed when I log in to my Rutgers account there is a recommendation listed by a person I have never even heard of (and it says it was submitted around 1/30/2009, far past the deadline). What the hell? Did that happen to anyone else? Could it be an internal thing?
Did you do a search on the person and "philosophy" and see what comes up?

Is there anyone else out there who has failed to get anything from them so far? It looks like acceptances and rejections went out by the last week in February. I'm on the west coast, but surely it can't take that long to get from Chicago to the coast! Anyone have any info?
They might be considering offering you one of those MAPH opportunities.

I just emailed everyone. Im sick of waiting. whatever. Ill let yall know if I hear anything....
Before everyone else goes crazt mass e-mailing, give departments until end of business Monday, March 16.

I've been in contact with a few departments that I haven't heard from, along with insiders at other places, and they all said, "by the end of this week we should have given every applicant an initial notification."

After next Monday, bulk e-mail away!
under this thread could people post the schools to which they are accepted but are going to decline the offer of admission. (continued from last page)
I will be declining a full funding + University Wide fellowship offer from Rochester.
Will they ever make their decisions?
I have it on good authority that decisions are shortly to be released -- by email, usually.

I wasn't accepted, but I haven't received a rejection letter or notification of being waitlisted.

Anyone else in this boat? I'm sure I would have received the rejections they sent out earlier this month by now if they sent me one.
Yeah, I think there are a couple of us in the same situation. My guess is that they're holding our names on the off-chance that they need to go a little deeper into the applicant pool to fill some slots. I wouldn't hold my breath.
