  1. Hiya, I applied mostly to MA programs and am wondering when decisions for these tend to come out. A few of them have Feb 1 deadlines (but I have already submitted apps for these), but UBC's deadline was Jan 8 and Indiana University's deadline was Jan 15. I know decision timelines vary a lot, but I have been seeing PhD programs with similar deadlines releasing their decisions, so I thought I'd ask
  2. omg, I hate that it makes you take that extra step, YIKES
  3. I agree, but I think there is a difference between willfully dismissing the context of our times and just getting fed up with structural/administrative necessities that, post hoc, become presuppositions within the community.

Thanks for clarifying! edit: also, I love your signature! always good to see my manz Aristotle on the internet
  8. Hi all, just discovered these forums. I'm wondering if predictions for MA acceptance will be posted on the spreadsheet, or if they are just super variable from year to year? Also, I noticed that Catholic University is not on the list?
