Just declined Cincinnati. I feel gross again.

Kudos for going into the finals days very lean.

Well, my lean toward Utah was heavy enough that it seemed morally unjustifiable to leave someone that might be in the Cincy WL waiting till the 15th.

It's all over for me, folks. I've declined offers from Syracuse and Rochester. This is the weirdest mix of emotions I have ever felt.

 

I'm curious what you'll be doing--another school or another year? (On mobile, which doesn't show sigs, so maybe the answer is there for wherever else you're accepted at.)

Haha, I've accepted Cincinnati's offer :) They're an excellent fit for me as I'm a diehard Gibsonian and everyone there seems to be as well.

Today I declined my offer of admission at Johns Hopkins... I found it emotionally draining, as I've really enjoyed my visit there and their community, and I've been treated really kindly by them during the whole process. So, whoever ends up at JHU - it's s wonderful and supportive place, and you're choosing well!! :) Good luck to everyone wait-listed by JHU.

Congrats! I really liked it there. If FSU hadn't blown me away we'd have been classmates!

Seconded. I could have been really happy there. If there's anyone out there that's considering an offer from the waiting list or something: it's a super awesome place! It is particularly awesome for those doing philosophy of biology or philosophy of cognitive science.

Haha yeah! What did they do, throw you guys a boat party or something?! (They probably did, didn't they?)

Thirded (?) - if anyone has any questions about their program feel free to contact me!

There actually were boats, although they were optional. I did get my first sunburn in years, which was a perverse sort of selling point.

May I ask what your AOI is? 

Sure. I mostly work in meta-ethics.

I have now declined UCSD and UCLA, so that I'm down to my second choice and my wait list choice going into this last week.

What's your AOI?

Do you think it's of bad taste to decline a WL mentioning that you accepted an offer from a another program and mentioning that a factor in deciding was that they put their faith in you (by accepting you in the first place)?

Congratulations!  May I ask which program you are in?
