    Declining Offers 2018

    I've recently declined GSU, LSU, Miami U of Ohio, and Memphis's MA.

    Out at Columbia. God bless America.

    I haven't. Looks like they employ the apathetic-episodic rejection style.

    Perhaps an oddly placed word of advice, but be advised, all those headed to visits: be prepared to succinctly and convincingly present your interests and direction, again and again, to all interested parties!

    Likely Columbia will send a few acceptances, and GSU is Thursday or perhaps Friday.

    Well, there goes an entire week of pointless anxiety

    The increasing quantity of my wine consumption is, sadly, inversely correlated with the quality of said wine.

    I thought this outlet might ameliorate the somewhat chaotic discourse in the admissions thread– which is, after all, supposedly about offers of admission. One thing eating me is that I will have to turn down offers from very nice people working in wonderful departments. What a waste! Also, why is time slowing down as decisions come out?

    Hey guys– this is the philosophy admissions forum, so it is unlikely (though possible) that anyone here has related knowledge. Best wishes on making it to brain land.

    Let us know if Columbia says anything!

    Stoic self: "It's ok if you get rejected by your dream school. A rejection will give you certainty, peace, and a final decision." Appetitive self: "That's what you said when the person I loved started dating the football player."

    Update: accepted at UC Santa Cruz's PhD program. (This is the school that bumped me from the MA pool to the PhD)
