  1. Just received word from UCLA that they won't be able to make a decision in time for me to respond to my Arizona offer---so, Arizona it is! I'm really excited!
  2. Removed myself from Notre Dame’s waitlist. Good luck to those still on their waitlist!
  3. And if anyone’s thinking about declining UCLA or Notre Dame, please PM me.
  4. Waitlisted at UCLA like the other poster. The email says acceptances have been out too.
  5. Not at all!

However, that group of philosophers is pretty representative, or slightly more disturbingly, authoritative, of the English-speaking philosophical community at large. PGR is useful in the sense that it makes this representative view (RV) available for anyone's reference.
