  1. For what it's worth, I was fairly broad. The advice I had was that it shouldn't look like some list. To be fair, my AOI is not nearly as specific as some people's on here. My advisors suggested that I make it clear I know what I was talking about without "pigeon holing" myself. Here is the section from my statement of purpose if it helps, "At this point in my academic career, I find myself most drawn to the way that philosophical issues connect and intersect with one another. I am especially attracted to the studies of epistemology and metaphysics. Metaphysical theories of personhood and of Truth, for example, overlap quite with genuine moral concerns and epistemological ones respectively. What it means to be a person or for something to be true or false have implications throughout the field of philosophical inquiry." My application was middlingly received, so take that for what it is worth.
  2. I have accepted a PhD at the University of Wisconsin Madison.
  3. Just solicited a rejection from Green.
  4. Hello all! I was wondering if anyone here has, or knows someone who has, applied to Mizzou for this cycle and, if so, if they have heard/solicited any news from the department. I’ve seen nothing on the results page, here, the FB group, or anywhere else. They are way past when they usually release. Thanks in advance for any information!
  5. Rejected from Notre Dame 3r/1a/2w of 14
  6. Waitlisted at UW Madison top choice so,,, hopefully!
  7. Just accepted to NIU they said funding information is forthcoming, they plan to give 5 funded positions total.
  8. Waitlisted at University of Rochester
  9. Rejected from Northwestern today, email to check ApplyWeb.
  10. I think it’s this: A 12 months stipend covers the whole year, a 9 month stipend covers the school year. In other words, the 9 month stipend often leaves you on your own for the summer and you have to get a part time job. I think 12 month stipends are more desirable as you get coverage through the summer (though you do have to work the summer usually as well).
