  1. Hopefully testing will be more widely available by the time Fall quarter/semester rolls around - in theory that would make some sort of on-campus operations more feasible.
  2. LOL I did finally get rejected this morning. I knew I wouldn't get in (based on what you mentioned), but this was the final school I was waiting to "officially" hear back from.
  3. 😁 Here's a few more unsolicited thoughts. Assuming the best case outcome post-PhD is an academic job, I think (as you said) hiring committees will look differently on a CogSci vs. Phil degree. It's likely that if you go the CogSci route you will be hirable in a CogSci/Psych/CS department, but probably not a philosophy department. But if you had a Phil degree you might be able to teach in a CogSci department and Phil department. When I visited UC Davis a number of Phil faculty there were cross-listed in CogSci (and were instrumental in starting the undergrad program itself). My guess
  4. Fair enough concern, and I'm not really sure about the standards/requirements for reporting placement outcomes. I do know from a reliable source that the LPS department has grown quite a bit in recent years, so perhaps those earlier cohorts were just smaller to begin with. I would maybe read that alumni list as providing an existence proof - it is possible to get a 'decent' non-academic job coming out of the LPS program, so that might assuage part of your original concern about whether LPS was geared only towards training future professors (of course dependent on whether or not those sorts of
  5. check out the recent alumni for LPS, I count several software engineers and lawyers and actuaries - so it seems LPS folk might have an easier time on the non-academic market than those coming from a more traditional philosophy program. https://www.lps.uci.edu/grad/alumni.php It might be worth trying to chat with a few of them, my recent experience is that people are usually willing to talk with prospective students about their time in grad school.
  6. has anyone been rejected from Duke yet?
  7. I emailed Stanford, while they have not yet officially cancelled the prospective visit, they did recommend NOT travelling to Stanford "at this time".
  8. that's a tough call. this might be more appropriate for the 'Decisions 2020' thread, but what factors will you prioritizing for your decision making without being able to consider department visits?
  9. Hang in there! The waiting SUCKS, but I wouldn’t be surprised to see quite a bit of waitlist movement in the next month.
  10. Same. Different. Same. Same. Same. Different... SAME.
  11. OK San Diego people, spill the beans
  12. guessing here - the acceptances that have gone out seem to be 'unofficial' notices from certain professors, with 'official' offers being sent out later by the administration, so perhaps the rejections need to be 'official' (i.e. from admin) as well
  13. got an (unofficial) offer today (via email) for Pitt HPS, my AOI is PhilSci so I'm super excited! this one will be very hard to say 'no' to...
