I've heard nothing from these at all. I know it means I'm rejected, but I'm pissed off that they haven't taken the time to tell me.
I've decided that if I haven't heard from schools within 48 hours, I will treat their silence as tacit acceptance.

has anybody here been rejected by either of these two schools or do they do silent rejections?
I got rejected at Riverside, in response to letting them know that one of my e-mail addresses was about to expire. I am still waiting on Colorado.

Has anyone been notified of being on a wait list at either U-Mass or Rochester?
U-MASS doesn't waitlist. It accepts X number of students hoping to yield Y number of students. They are notoriously bad at notifying their rejects. They have already sent out acceptances. Needless to say, if you didn't receive an acceptances then you are rejected (no maybe's nor probably's about it!).

Has anyone been accepted?
Has anyone heard anything from Duquesne?

There are a couple posts on the grad cafe results board claiming acceptance a mere week or two after the application deadline, which leads me to believe they are fraudulent.
I think the website said they decide in mid march.


I haven't heard from them, but I'd assumed I wasn't accepted. That's a good point about the dates on those posts, though. I didn't catch that, as I'm predisposed to rejection...

The email was from Louise Antony.

Rejected, and I had to write to them to find out.

i was thinking of applying next year and had a question, hoping that someone may answer. if one is a permanent resident of the US, but not a citizen, does one count as an international? and if not, is it harder to get residency in other states?
You have to become a US citizen before you can "declare" residence.

I know this topic has been previously been brought up, but now that a few of us here actually have experience with the whole Q&A during visits thing, I was wondering if anyone (experienced or non-experienced) might have any advice for what kind of questions one should ask. I don't want to miss out on anything important!
This is especially important if you're male. Whenever a female grad student walks by, be sure to ask whoever you're talking with whether she's single. This is especially effective while staring at her ass and making one of those "Damn, girl!" faces.

What the dilly-yo with CU Boulder??? It's March 17th! I hope they're not on spring break...
yeah, seriously!
Rejected at ASU for the PhD.
I have no other choice than to do an MA. I am really hoping to get in at CSULB.

Results.
PhD: MIT, Penn, Duke, Miami, CMU, Northwestern, JHU, ASU - rejected
Master's: CSULA - accepted, CSULB - still waiting, KCL (MPhil) - still waiting
I was under the impression that CSULA is a better program than CSULB, with better placement. Am I mistaken?

Hello peeps,

Who do you e-mail to find out whether we've been rejected by riverside? I e-mailed kathy saylor, but she never responded.

Thx a ton.
I'd say email everyone in the department with an angry, all-caps inquiry.

Has anyone else noticed that philosophy departments at private universities seem to have better placement records than similarly ranked public universities? Perhaps this means that, ceteris paribus, it might be beneficial to choose a program at a private university over a slightly higher ranked program at a public university?
No. That simply means, ceteris paribus, it may be benificial to choose the program with the better placement record. But when are things ever cereris paribus?

Does anyone know when/if we will receive more information about our placement on the waitlist at wisconsin. I get a sense that a lot of us are on it and I would really like to know whether I'm high up on it or not.
They don't yet know how many spots they will have for the fall. I was told that they should have a good idea very soon (this week or next).
