  2. Hi there, can I get my profile picture reset please? Thanks!
  3. @another_time thank you for your reply! you made some solid points. balanced out the scales a bit...
  4. Hi guys, So I'm currently finishing up my BA at UCLA with a major in Philosophy and a minor in Cognitive Science. My career goals are to earn a PhD in Philosophy, research, and teach. I was accepted into the MA in Philosophy at SFSU, which is one of the top philosophy MA programs. (Two year program) Pros: Great department, I believe my tuition is covered and I have to just worry about housing, San Francisco, a straight path and preparation toward Philosophy PhD. They will allow me to TA, take classes in their Psychology department, as well as at Berkeley. And I get to pursue my interests in Philosophy of Mind and Cog Sci. Cons: Housing market, school not "prestigious" outside of philosophy. I was super stoked about this and accepted my offer immediately! (I got denied from every PhD program I applied to.) THEN, NYU said they forwarded my application over to the School of Global Public Health... and I was accepted with to their MA in Bioethics with a 10k scholarship. Pros: NEW YORK UNIVERSITY! One year program. NYC. Prestige. Edgy. Practical. I can get this MA, and then hopefully go off into a PhD in Philosophy and earn an MA in Philosophy there, so then I will have an MA in Bioethics AND Philosophy... Will probably look great for PhD apps. Seems like a really great program. Cons: Not sure if it will help me get into Grad School. Less time, but will be more expensive. Never had a huge interest in Bioethics but could make it work... (But maybe its a sign from the universe)... I have no idea what to do! Any advice is appreciated.
  5. The decisions page is losing its credibility because of the (potentially) troll posts...
  6. praying to Socrates and the Active Intellect that Chalmers calls me too T_T
  7. Congrats! Currently a UCLA undergrad. Great department and great people (professors, grad students, and undergrads)
  8. Yeah Its difficult contorting your mouth in that way. I suppose the "most correct" way would be something like "Keer-gigor"
  9. Have a Scandanavian boyfriend.. Here is the OG way of pronouncing it. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:DA-S%C3%B8ren_Kierkegaard.ogg
  10. One Princeton is up...
  11. Ugh, I wish I applied to the New School for Social Research. For some reason, I had never heard of it until after application season was over! Good luck.
  12. BROWN!!! *crosses fingers*
  13. Yes, it was great to hear something positive like "your application was" and "strong" in the same sentence. I've been going crazy with anxiety the past few days. This is the first contact I've had thus far, so it was slightly relieving.
  14. Rejected from Chicago. But they referred me to the MAPH because my application was "strong". But it seems like they sent this to most. Was this the generic email? Thoughts?
  15. Both + skepticism :3
