    Undergraduate grades, the writing sample, and AOS

    I don't think so. A good writing sample in Metaphysics will cover a multitude of sins. Also, you could always ask directors of ad coms what they think.

    Well, I'll defer to other opinions here, but I think you're fine!. One A- won't give adcoms pause, especially if you kill a writing sample in that area.

    I hope you get it! But Fordham is a great consolation prize, if not!

    2018 Acceptance/Rejection Thread

    Hello UNC people: I bravely emailed Dr. Paul again. I'll let you know what she tells me. It's April 15th, after all!! EDIT: OK that was quick, lol. I got a rejection.

    Declining Offers 2018

    Removed myself from Ohio State’s wait list

    Option A imo. Money aspect will take a lot of pressure off of you. And being close to home is very helpful. Also, since it's an MA, you don't have to zero in on your AOIs this early. You can always explore your AOIs in a PhD. Plus, your AOIs can always change!

    Nice!!! I really hope for an answer soon from them, as I'm holding off accepting an offer until I hear from them.

    I haven't received one either. Probably just comes in waves, I'm guessing?

    Still Waiting to Hear From...

    I second the above. I got a response yesterday, and it was the same thing.

    Yea I 2nd the above. I got "unlikely, though far from impossible" on my solicitation. And from what I remember, non-trivial means you are decently high on the wait list. So it definitely could happen for you!

    Cool, well I look forward to meeting you in Tallahassee come August, if it comes to that!

    What are you thinking? Are you going to try for one of the wait lists? I ask because I am strongly leaning towards accepting FSU's PhD offer.

    Writing Samples Request

    Yea. It was a brutal 3-4 weeks. I didn't put my best foot forward for various personal reasons, but I was happy to have the success I did given the situation. I have certainly played the "what-if" game a lot in the past 3 months. Moral of the story: don't do what I did!
