  1. Hey all, Starting this thread to help each other and let one another know where we applied, got accepted, denied or wait-listed. Also feel free to provide any other information such as funding, choosing one school over another, reasons why rejecting etc. Here is my list of applications and updates so far: USA Yale Div - MARc Philosophical Theology/Philosophy of Religion (waiting) Duke Div - MTS (accepted w/ 25% funding) - any idea how to get more? Wake Forest Div - MDiv (rejected) - was surprised to find out I was rejected BU SoT - MTS (waiting) Canada Wycliffe College (UofT) - MTS (waiting) Regent College - MTS (waiting) UK U of Oxford (Wycliffe Hall) - MTh (waiting) U of Cambridge - MPhil in Theology, Religion, and Philosophy of Religion (waiting) U Of Edinburgh - MPhil (waiting) U of St. Andrews - MTh (rejected) I'm also an international student, graduating with a B.A. in Theology from the historic Moody Bible Institute (Chicago, IL) Any ideas of funding available for international students? The idea of a loan kind of scares me. Best of luck everyone!
  2. Hi there, My name is Marjorie and I'm applying to be a non-degree seeking student at UWM this fall for their MA in Philosophy so that I can explore whether or not I want to pursue this field of study, instead of continuing down the psychology/social work career path. I was hoping to possibly get some feedback on my reason statement, which is based off of the guidelines they provided. Any constructive criticism is welcome; I'm not looking for perfection here, just want to make a good impression. Thank you in advance for taking the time to read this and offer feedback. Having studied psychology during my years as an undergraduate, I initially thought I would pursue graduate study in social work or counseling psychology, with the goal of becoming a counselor. Fast forward a few years since graduation, and I am seriously reconsidering this career path. I currently work at a hospital which specializes in the treatment of mental illness. This new position has made me question some of the practices of modern-day psychiatry and has emphasized the reality that the helping professions run an exceptionally high risk of burnout and a loss of empathy called compassion fatigue. I want to be part of a revolution that changes the way we approach mental health care and I think the best way to do this is through the lens of philosophical enquiry, particularly through applied ethics. I also desire to catalyze a resurgence of philosophy by examining it and distilling the knowledge into a practical philosophy that is both accessible and useful for the general public. I earned a 4.0 during my first two years of college, earning a place on the Provost’s list during that time, and was inducted into Phi Eta Sigma, a freshman honorary society. After that, I was on the Dean’s list nearly every year and graduated after five years of study with a Bachelors of Science in Psychology, Bachelors of Arts in Spanish, a minor in Environmental Studies, and a Mental Health Skills Certificate. My broad undergraduate experience gave me the confidence and writing skills to succeed in masters level classes and the two philosophy courses I took enhanced my ability to think critically and gave me an idea of what doing philosophy means, and why it is important. Reflecting on my college career, I have realized that philosophy courses were the ones that I was most engaged in, and challenged me the most intellectually. Topics of interest for me range from the study of logic and ethics to philosophy of religion. I am particularly interested in the philosophy of eastern religions and the intersection between psychology, neuroscience, and philosophy. My hope is to explore these interests further as a student at UWM, with the intention to eventually pursue a PhD in the subject.
