  1. Hi! I am currently an Americorps volunteer applying for graduate programs. Most programs offer fee waivers on their applications for folks who have participated in Peace Corps or Americorps (which can save you $1000+ when you're applying to upwards of 10 programs). I would also see if you're eligible for the Segal Education Award, which is a post-service benefit available for Americorps that can be used towards educational expenses (up to $6.5k I believe). Not sure how helpful this is, but hopefully it's a start!
  2. Hey! I'm also applying to programs this cycle and totally feel your pain. To my knowledge, departments are still in the process of meeting to discuss future funding for graduate students this month, so we'll know more in the upcoming weeks. For now, I would only suggest being patient and continuing to work on your applications. If it helps, I'm remaining cautiously optimistic that these programs (UChicago, Rice, etc.) will remain outliers -- I have heard on good authority that many top programs will continue to accept applications this year albeit it is highly likely they will be accepting sma
  3. Hey! This might also be useful: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/13LIpf9vUTi6rDvQ1IDrS7EGKkdO5NxdZh5GPdVOt4M4/edit#gid=0
  4. Just saw the news -- don't know if I'll be able to consider their MA since it's not really funded, but thanks!
  5. Hi! I realize I've been posting here quite often lately, but I saw the call for applications to CUSP's Fall Workshop and wanted to see if it's worth it to apply? E.g. does anyone here have firsthand experience with CUSP/CUSP's workshop, is it worthwhile and useful, and would participating in this program boost my chances of getting into Penn State's graduate program at all? Thanks a mil!
  6. Has anyone confirmed that Columbia philosophy will be accepting applications for this upcoming year? The departments of political science, history, and sociology at Columbia have all recently announced their decisions to suspend admissions for this upcoming year, and I'm not feeling great about philosophy especially after the department at UChicago suspended its admissions. It would be a bummer for sure since Columbia is one of my top choices. Thanks!
