Hey guys, one of my friend who is supposed to start her phd in philosophy in a US university, received a news that her program will defer 2020 admissions to 2021. She normally received fully funded offer but now that is the situation she is in. I was wondering if something would happen in our field, political science.
Is this decision of the department or the university? I think that seems a department decision, but I am not sure.
Do you guys think this is a unique case or we may see such decisions from other universities or departments?
