Is there a way to contact recently admitted students? I doubt graduate advisors would give out that information.
I think that would count as a violation of pirvacy, yeah. Some options for you:

(1) Tell the grad coorindator that you want them to email out your contact info.
(2) Use websites such as this one.
(3) Meet them on the visit days.

This is a complete reversal of fortune from having been shut out last year.
Was anything different in your app?

Does the action last Friday imply that no news means rejection?
Maybe, so. I have no message, either.

I am waiting on results for the Metaphysical Mayhem at Rutgers. So are some of you. Post when you hear back!
I'm also waiting.
Has anyone heard anything about any of the following?

University of New Mexico
Fordham
Duquesne
Kentucky
Hey I wrote to Polansky at Duquesne, he said that due to Spirng break, there will be no action for a while. There is a scheduled admissions meeting on March 15th he said, and I'm assuming that it won't be long after 3/15 that we hear word

taking the cue from the above MA placement posts, what about Tufts? The graduate program section of their website has been inactive for many months now, so there's no clear indication of placement.

Anyone care to share?
Last year, Tufts placed its students at UBC, Pitt, and UCLA. (I know at least one of the students had a few other options (e.g., Stanford and USC).)

I can post more about this year's applicants later.

Tufts grads (or former students) have attended every top school in the past few years-- off the top of my head, I can think of two who went to NYU, two to MIT, and one each to Harvard, Stanford, Columbia, UNC, Brown, and Princeton. But I'm sure there are others.

As a rule, those who apply from Tufts do well; but many students choose not to apply (for one reason or another). For corroboration, see Tucker Lentz's discussion the Tufts program. Most of what he says seems right to me, but relevant here is that 7 of the 11 in his cohort are now at 'top PhD programs'.

Does anyone know if the old philprospectives board is still running? This is a board that operated last year "for those people who got into places or were wait listed. Making it private eliminated trolls and allowed people to speak more openly. It also facilitated contacting people considering the same schools. As far as I know from the people I've met who were using it actively, the board helped people make a more informed decision."

If the old board is defunct and people are interested, I'll happily start a new one.
It's alive and posting is just starting to heat up:

Two acceptances and a waitlist on tgc, anyone want to claim them?

I'm the wait list. I received an email telling me that a decision had been made and that I could access it through the website. It said something using a combination of the phrases "sorry that we can't grant immediate admission," "can't without funding" and "very short wait list."

Anyone want to claim it? Any details?

I was under the impression that Duquesne wasn't sending out acceptances until later in March.
Duquesne makes offers in rounds.
Last year, Duquesne made initial offers in February, and more offers later in March.
I think their waitlist is "unofficial" meaning they do not inform you that you are waitlisted, but rather respond to e-mail queries with phrases such as "your application is still very active"

Still waiting on Hopkins. Pretty much my last good shot.

Does New School ever give out stipends? All I see on past TGC are tuition wavers at best... what's the deal?

The deal is that there is no deal :(.

As far as I know.
