  1. 2018 Acceptance/Rejection Thread

    Pittsburgh also had Karl Schafer working in early modern philosophy a few years ago, but he's at Irvine now. I'm still somewhat surprised that they haven't brought on anyone else who works in EM in the time since he left, but I'm sure that they will eventually. It sounds like you have a tough choice ahead of you based on the strength of Toronto in EM and the overall strength of Pittsburgh... But also, that's an amazing choice to get to make!

    Based on past years, this sounds about right. Unfortunately, they don't seem to typically tell people that they are on the waitlist, but will instead just delay in sending decisions to a small number of people. I'm not really sure what the point of that is, but my guess is that anyone who doesn't receive a rejection at the same time as everyone else can take himself/herself to be on an invisible waitlist.

    Their POI may have sent them a personalized email regarding their rejection. It's rare, but that does sometimes happen, and it may explain some anomalies like that. Either way, I wouldn't let it concern you too much, since it probably doesn't have much bearing on when the bulk of the decisions from a given school will come out.

    By the looks of it, a bunch of decisions from Penn State went out today. Seems like it was mostly rejections, but one person says that they received an acceptance.

    Same here, made an account to claim an offer of admission from UC Irvine. Still waiting for the formal offer and details about funding.
