  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. Hi guys! Just curious about your thoughts on San Francisco State's program, because I feel like I've only run into problems with their department and I'm wondering if I'm not the only one. Here goes... Since applying to SFSU's program in mid December, I've received six emails informing me that my undergraduate transcripts for two of my universities have not yet arrived. I've now paid $40 to send three separate copies of my transcripts to the graduate studies department, both in electronic and paper formats, and I have sent five emails to different people asking if there is anything I could possibly do to fix the situation. I tried logging into my student portal, only to have to tangle with the IT department because I was unable to answer the security questions the site was asking, as they did not apply to me. I emailed the Division of Graduate Studies, who reminded yet again that my transcripts were missing from my application. This was the second and last time I ever received a response from the SFSU graduate department. I know that this is not a problem on my end, because I've read multiple accounts on here posted by confused students who are also frustrated with the department. In early December, I called the Communication Disorders office because I had several questions about the application that I could not find answers to on their website. When I called, the woman on the other end told me to guess on portions of my Cal State Apply application because she and her colleagues had yet not been trained on how to use the new Cal State Apply system... huh? This was nearly a week prior to the deadline! She also told me that the department had intentionally left misleading and outdated information on their website instructing applicants to send hard copies of their application packets to the department through the mail (with an additional application fee and postage expense) because they thought it would be confusing if they deleted it. I was surprised when I received an invitation to interview, as I had all but written off this school, seeing as the department doesn't respond to my emails and I can no longer view which documents have been processed in my student portal. I wasn’t even aware that the program conducted interviews, because I couldn't find any information about it anywhere on the Communication Disorders website. The only reason I suspected that they might interview prospective students is because I hunted through last year’s information here on GradCafe specifically looking for evidence that interviews might be held. I received the interview invitation Monday evening and went to bed thinking that I would respond in the morning, but then I was buzzed awake at 2:30 AM when I received yet ANOTHER email telling me that SFSU still doesn’t have my transcripts! Please tell me I'm not crazy... is SFSU usually this disorganized? I feel like I'm trying everything I possibly can but I'm getting no response from the school and I don't know what more I can do. This seems like a great program and I'd really love to live in San Francisco, but I'm honestly thinking of withdrawing my application because it's been such a headache!! Anyone else run into similar problems with this school?
