    Declined UMSL MA offer
  5. It looks like that I will hear back from WLs close to or on April 15. I am trying to get as much infor as I can, so I know what to do. I have been talking to some current graduate students at programs where I have been admitted and waitlisted, many have recommended doing a visit, but I won't be able to do so. Has anyone visited any terminal Masters programs? How did it go? I can, of course, take it to PM.

    Choosing MA: Tufts/Brandeis/CUNY

    It will be better if you do not need to take any loans, but since all of the three are not fully funded, I'd say Tufts. It is one of the best program and cheaper than Brandeis in your case. As for CUNY, I think, for the reason you pointed out in 3, a terminal MA would be a better choice. Try talk to current graduate students at Tufts & Brandeis before you make the decision.

    Chance of Getting into Philsophy Grad School

    I am not sure if this will help at all, but my overall GPA was once lower than 3.0 (the sophomore year I think), then I was able to boost it a little later on by concentrating on Philosophy classes. (For several semesters I take only Philosophy classes). I applied this cycle to MA programs with a 3.29 overall GPA. For what it is worth, my Philosophy GPA is not as high as I wanted to either (somewhere between 3.6/3.7) and I have an embarrassingly low GRE score (even for an international student). I did mention it to my letter writers. I was told by many that the most important thing is your writing sample and (probably) followed by letters. For the transcript, your philosophy courses matter more. If it shows that you have a strong background in Philosophy, I would not worry too much about the GPA. I suspect that I did so by having 18 Philosophy courses, tho I have a few B/B+ among those. So far tho still waiting for funding infor. I got into several programs. You can see my results in my signature.

    I thought NIU does not have a PhD program? Am I wrong about that?

    Has anyone taken a class with Una Stojnic?

    Well, I am not sure how much information you are going to get about a particular person/class online. Why don't you contact her and ask about the class and probably go to the first class session? I am an undergraduate and cannot speak about the grad-level, but I have attended her talks several times and she is great!

    2019 Graduate Entrants

    Thank you! Yes, you are right. I will probably add them to my list. I was searching people who work on both value theory and feminist philosophy and left out some of the good programs.
