    Declining Offers/Withdrawing Applications Thread

    If anyone is thinking of declining an offer (or waitlist) from the University of Texas, Austin or Notre Dame, would you PM me?

    Typical Week of Philosophy

    I think I usually averaged 70 hour weeks in my first year, but that's hard to account for, given the amount of bullshitting that goes on when you talk to your classmates while working.

    I'm afraid that I don't understand what you're trying to say. You think the professors are poor, which is why UCSB is ranked 44th on the Philosophical Gourmet Report? If this is what you think, I would say that there are a good number of excellent faculty members there. The department is very small, so it would be hard for them to compete with larger departments, given their size. For what it's worth, the graduate students that I talked to claimed that the faculty were very helpful.

    I mean, UCSB is an R1, so that makes sense.

    I just declined UCSB (which almost broke my heart).

    I'm pretty sure I added this to the results page, but I was emailed by Kent Staley. Maybe your status will change now.

    Declining Offers/Withdrawing Applications Thread

    Today, I declined Florida State and removed myself from the waitlists at UC Davis (where I was third on the waitlist); SLU (unranked); and Syracuse (where I was approximately 13th on a waitlist of 20). It was really hard to do this because these are all good programs, but it just wouldn't be fair to the other applicants.

    Waitlists

    If you look at their profile, I believe it was Princeton.

    Waitlists

    Congratulations on being accepted to your top choice, and thanks for quickly removing yourself from the waitlist! You're one of my many heroes right now!

    Acceptances

    I emailed to ask if I was off the waitlist at Florida State, and they had just voted to accept me even though no one had yet declined! Really nice of them!

    Waitlists

    I was also waitlisted at Notre Dame, and I want to hope that the waitlist is not made up of 21 people, since ND is my first choice! I'm glad I'm not the only one who drew that conclusion!

    Are you a student there, now Jespersen? If so, could I PM you?
