I still haven't heard one way or the other from Loyola. Anyone else in the same boat? Have those who have been accepted received any further info about how many are being admitted, etc.? Any of those accepted planning on turning LUC down?
There are only three funded spots at LUC this year. That is all I know.

Dear Yale,

I regret to inform you that I have decided to end our relationship. It is not that I do not love you, it is just that our relationship is going nowhere. You have told all your friends that they are accepted, or waitlisted, but what about me? If you want to turn me away, just do it so I can move on. There are other fine universities out there, and I can see my self settling down with one of them for at least a half dozen years. Just tell me what's on your mind, okay?
Here, here!

What is up with today? And why is NYU being so douche-y? Come on already!

Toronto HPS

To whoever wanted to know about the Toronto IHPST: The director of graduate studies informed me today that they had a target class of 9-10, they have made about 10 offers, and they will make a few more offers if people decline. No official wait lists have been set up, but if you haven't heard anything yet, there is some hope remaining for you.
Thanks for the info. Know how many people applied?

I was just waitlisted via email for Texas A&M's Masters Program (Yay! The first good news that I have heard!) Does anyone know to what extent they utilize thier waitlist? Thanks!!!
I'm an MA student at TAMU. Some of the students who were admitted last year were over 10 spots down on the waitlist. So, I think you should be optimistic. I think really highly of the department here, and the MA program has been really good to me.

If not, would someone call the department? dziękuję!
They are usually this late; I would guess first acceptances would be out the end of this week and then waitlist a week or so after that. If you don't here anything by the middle of next week then call.
Does anyone know how many people were accepted at Harvard this year?
6

. . . and I am not one of them. Sigh.

Should we expect to hear from them tomorrow?

I hear from trustworthy sources that they are making their decisions tomorrow, but knowing how fast things move in Oxford, I'd be surprised if we all hear before the weekend.
Anyone heard anything about Metaphysical Mayhem?
Yes, I just heard about it.

Now someone is claiming on TGC that DePaul is STILL considering people NOT invited to campus, but don't expect a decision by May?

Is this bullshit?

Depaul WTF

Gradcafe message said:

"Emailed to check status, I received a response that said I am still being considered but not to expect a decision before the first week of May."

ROFL

and

WTF?
For those of you who have been accepted/waitlisted at UC schools: how is the budget crisis affecting your decision to attend? I am certainly worried that faculty will head for greener pastures if the furloughs last another year or so. Anyone currently at these schools care to share your thoughts?
Berkeley and UCLA will remain incredible schools, no matter what happens.

Whether they will remain public schools in any interesting sense is another matter. But that's long term. If the state keeps cutting their budgets, they will raise tuition. But they will do whatever they have to do to keep their best professors.

Heard from a friend that Hopkins met to make its final decisions early this week, should be out next week.
I want to hate the fake posts on the grad cafe for being immature and silly, but they're so goddamn funny. Eva Braun... you're killing me.
You don't want to hate the fake posts, because they add a bit of levity to these harrowing proceedings.
WHAT THE FUCK IS IT WITH YOU PEOPLE AND BRIAN FUCKING LEITER? FOR FUCK'S SAKE, HE'S JUST A MID-LEVEL PHILOSOPHER TALKING OUT OF HIS ASS LIKE THE REST OF US. HE'S NOT SEXY, HE'S NOT FUCKABLE, HE'S NOT EVEN A GOOD READ. FOR FUCK'S SAKE

JESUS FUCKING CHRIST. WHAT THE FUCK. IF YOU'RE GONNA FANTASIZE ABOUT FUCKING A PHILOSOPHER, IT SHOULD BE SOMEONE COOL, LIKE DERRIDA OR SOME SHIT.
