  1. I just got admitted by Western. This is one of the top choices for me (academically). I will have an annual funding of 25000CAD in total. The tuition and fees are to be deducted from this amount. And I also wrote to a few their PhD students. Per their replies, they really lived THRIFTY lives with the funding. What I also knew from their replies is it's not very likely to own a car in Western with the funding. Ontario's auto insurance rates are insanely high. I might need to pay 330CAD monthly premium for my old shabby nissan. But I really don't want to stand there, waiting for a bus in
  2. Hi, guys. I am an applicant to philosophy PhD programs this cycle. I am applying to programs in both America (15) and Canada (3).

If one started to prepare the application simply after March due to the pandemic, Idk, it might be too hasty? The biggest threat to me is that many programs suspend or reduce admission this academic year. This d
  4. Oh, you're right. I thought Yale and Princeton are not admitting. Sorry about that.
  5. If my memory serves me well, didn't CMU require GRE this year? Btw, HomoLudens, are the following the schools you are applying to this year? I believe many of them are not admitting funded PhD. UCSD, Princeton, Pitt, Toronto, UT Austin, NYU, Boston University, UCR, UCLA, Cornell, IUB, Georgetown, Notre Dame, Harvard, Vanderbilt, Yale, UNC, UVA, Wisconsin, USC, Boulder, Johns Hopkins, SUNY Stony Brook
