    Why don't you go to Oxford? Tufts is better than Oxford?

    PHILOSOPHY M.A. ACCEPTANCE/REJECTION 2018

    It's so kind of you.Thanks a lot! I'm hesitating to apply for a TA. I'm a international student and my spoken English is not as good as native speakers. Maybe I will have trouble with listening and communicating with professors during classes at begining. Is it a better choice to do a TA in the second semester? I aim at applying for good PhD programs. If get a TA will help me a lot, I will try my best to do so. Sorry to bother you to ask other thing. I hear that the program has many graduate students. How many will be showing in a class? I want to prepare myself better before attending. btw. What's your WS about? Would you mind tell me that doing what areas will get most help from sfsu? I saw you were accepted in Toronto. A top program! Congratulations too!

    Hi friend, I just recieved an email from sfsu. It says "Department of philosophy at San Francisco State University has recommended your admission for fall 2018. Your application has been returned with our endorsement to the Division of Graduate Studies, which will send official notification to you." Do you know how long will I have to wait until recieve the official notification?

    Wow, I heard its reputation! The top1 university in China, especially its humanities. You must be very smart. My firends says its analytic tradition is weak, but it seems just a misunderstanding.

    I have a friend in China, and I never heard something good about philosophy education in China from him... Which school did you get your BA and MA from? Your offer is really really amazing...

    "a silent rejaction"? Will they reject a student without informing the student?

    Asking some advices for choosing MA programs.

    If you are serious about philosophy and want to start a professional career with it, I would recommend a MA program which can put you into a top PhD program. I think a high-quality discipline training and the good reputation from a PhD program is very crucial for a successful career.

    Tufts is a bit unpractical for me, but it's nice to know more about it. Thanks!

    Many thanks NIU is one of my dream school, it's better to hear that it lies in a small town and has faculty working in these areas.

    Asking some advices for choosing MA programs.

    It's very helpful! Thank you! I concern about interests out of a consideration for my future writing sample. I think if I could write a sample in a field I'm interested in, that might be much better for me to give some valuable points, and a professor who specializes in this field will help me a lot. After all, it would be very helpless if I can't find a suitable professor to advise me to write my sample paper. A question about SFSU. It's placement record seems not very clear, as someone says “The schools that students had been accepted into were aggregated into a list, so it was impossible to tell how many students were enrolled in PhD programs, and where they were enrolled. " Are there some other ways to see it's record is good?

    Thanks! Yeah, it's difficult I guess so. Metaphysics, Aristotle and Kant are more important intersts, philosophy of religion is less so, among them, metaphysics maybe the most. Ideally, I merely want to find a program support one of them, not all. Do you mean Dekalb is samll and sparsely populated? Or it has some other defects? I know little about this city...But personally speaking, I perfer to live in a small town compared to big cities, only if it's actually quiet and convenient for basic needs of life.
