Congratulations! I regret not applying there. I really like Stathis Psillos.

Thank you! I'd thought I was rejected based on the initial wave of acceptances, but I suspect they went out to Canadian students first.

I really like Psillos too, but I think he went back to Athens a few years ago, if I am not wrong. I am mainly hoping to work with the philosophers of physics and historians of philosophy/science there at Rotman. Ultimately it'll come down to funding though :(

Only the one ND call? Hardly the wave I was expecting. I might have to stop refreshing and actually accomplish something.

Yeah same, back to my essays...

Hoping that ND isn't done with their acceptances. Only know of 2 phone call acceptances at the moment so that gives me hope, given their average intake is ~10 people...

If I miss this wave I think I will probably figure I'm getting shut out for one reason or another and start thinking about another way to spend the next few years.

What is the FB group? Can someone link it?

I hope so too! I don't want think too much of it, but it seems like those of us who haven't heard back from ND yet might be at least waitlisted. It'd be odd if they sent out rejections first before sending out acceptances, only to send out more rejections after the acceptances.

Rejected by MIT. Quest Completed: Banished from the Institute.

Should you cross us, we will kill you. Go now, and live whatever meaningless life you can.

Their DGS told me that they were giving me an early acceptance because I was nominated me for a fellowship.

Thank you, that's somewhat comforting to hear! :) Did they mention when they'll give out the remaining offers?

No problem. Unfortunately he didn't mention that. But given their visiting dates, it should be fairly soon.

Awesome, thank you for the information. And congratulations on the offer/nomination by the way! :D

Congratulations! I guess the more important question is whether they are done with the rejections? Was there any hint that they were?

Has anybody heard something from UC Santa Barbara? 

One of my colleagues got accepted back in January (!). They were on the plane for admitted students visit day yesterday so I would assume things are already out :/
