  1. Hey y'all. Worried about my chances of acceptance into philosophy MA programs. As of right now, I know I am for sure applying to San Francisco State, California State Los Angeles, London School of Economics (MSc in Philosophy & Public Policy/Philosophy of the Social Sciences), Wayne State University (I'm already accepted into the AGRADE program there, so this is my backup), and the University of Missouri St. Louis. Possibly also applying to Georgia State University and Northern Illinois University (depending on if I can take the GRE in time). Here are my stats: GPA: 3.75 Philosophy GPA: 3.73 Treasurer of a political activist group on campus. Also involved in a volunteer group dedicated to teaching elementary students philosophy. No papers in conferences. Two letters of recommendation very familiar with my work and enthusiastic about writing the letters. One of the professors has friends in the faculty of a couple programs I'm applying to. Hoping that will help. No GRE scores. This may theoretically be a problem for University of Missouri St. Louis (recommended but not required), but for SFSU, Cal State LA, LSE, and WSU, they do not ask for GRE scores at all. Doing my writing sample on how to legally classify trans folk to ensure that insurance companies cannot deny them access to resources such as hormones, gender therapy, and surgical procedures, without resorting to the medicalization of trans bodies. My interests are primarily in political philosophy, legal philosophy, ethics, and metaphysics. What do you think are my chances of acceptance? The dream would be to eventually work on a PhD at LSE or CUNY Graduate Center. I'm also very interested in the PhD programs at Michigan State, Penn State, University of Oregon, and DePaul. For schools like MSU, Penn State, and Oregon, is it really necessary for me to stress where I'm getting my masters at?

  3. I've got a wonderful problem: I've been accepted to two PhD programs and have no idea which one will be the best fit for me long term. They're both through departments of psychology; one at Miami University in Oxford, OH with a focus in Behavioral Neuroscience, and one at Wayne State University in Detroit, MI in the area of Behavioral and Cognitive Neuroscience. My problem is this: I'm in love with the research at Wayne but intrigued by the plusher setup Miami is offering. Both programs are well ranked and there aren't any red flags for either. Does anyone have any advice for how to make this decision and/or any insight into what the programs may be like beyond the little taste I got at my interviews? I'm very torn and while I'm leaning towards Wayne very slightly (think, 97% undecided) based on the research I'd be doing, Miami has a much nicer campus, updated lab space, and is closer to my family. Any insights would be greatly appreciated.

  5. Hi, All!! Looking for a little help here. This decision to apply came on me like a whirlwind, but I jumped in and caught the tailwinds of a new path. I have always known that I wanted to help people and I thought I wanted to pull people from the river on the micro level, but now I know I want to work through the world through the Micro, Mezzo, and Macro. I never thought that I would have this chance, even in my wildest dreams, that any of my experiences would bring me to a point where I could possibly affect change on a greater level. That low expectation was shattered the day I heard the sound, a noise I know well, the noise of my email alerting me to a new message. This message seemed to be hand typed, it came from the social work side of a Joint Ph.D. in Social Work and Anthropology, telling me that they were reviewing my application and asked if I could visit, giving me many choices in time and date. I couldn't believe it, there are only two programs in the Nation that offer a joint program as such. My world was in a spin, I was in shock and excitement I didn't know what to do. I told everybody I knew and wanted to run in circles, but the adrenaline soon wore off and I realized I had no idea what I was doing. I spent all of the time, four months actually, perfecting my application not really thinking about what came next. Now current me is looking both ways, at the past and at the future but is a little lost. I was in a master's program, one that didn't fit well and never had a formal interview so now I don't now what to do. Here I am at the other end of my keyboard, looking for guidance and help, from those who may have gone before me in Anthropology, Social Work or both. I don't know what to ask, nor do I know what to say this interview process is new to me. If anybody could help, it's mean a lot to a random guy on the internet.
