Acceptance Thread

Does anybody have any ideas regarding UCR? I haven't heard of any waitlists or rejections, only the two fellowship acceptances (perhaps they had a university-wide deadline to meet and so made fellowship offers early?).

From the UCR Phil Dept website (emphasis mine): 

While offers vary due to state funding constraints, the Philosophy Department generally provides up to five years of financial support to incoming Ph.D. students. This typically consists of a full fellowship the first year and TA appointments for several years after that. Students are encouraged to seek additional funding through other fellowships and grants.

I wasn't told anything beyond this in the acceptance email or any following correspondence.

In at Georgetown! After being totally shut out last year, an offer feels good.  

Got accepted into the University of Tennessee, Knoxville -  full funding for 5 years! Haven't heard anything from the 11 other programs to which I applied..

JUST ACCEPTED TO UCSB!! I needed this badly. I was shutout last year, and this was my last shot. My only worry now is funding. No word on that yet. If I can't get the funding, I can't go. Hoping it wo

Congrats! How'd you hear, if I may ask?

Personal email from Oliver Sensen at 11:43pm Saturday night. He is the director of graduate studies, but also my POI, so perhaps he connected with me directly before the other acceptances are released.

Just got admitted to the PhD at University of South Florida. 6th alternate for funding atm. I got the email around 10 minutes ago.

Congrats. I hope that funding pulls through. I was down there for FEAST two years back, and the grad students I met seemed happy.

Rejected to all 7 Phd programs to which I applied, yet accepted to Boston College's MA. Already have an MA however, so I'm not sure whether it is prudent to go deeper in debt for a second MA, when ultimately I could be shut out from Phd programs after getting the BC MA. I did notice that, although not all of the BC students have their info listed, 7 of the Phd students that did have their credentials listed entered after getting a BC MA, so that is encouraging.

...If anyone happens to have info on this sort of thing (moving from a department's MA to Phd program), it'd be much appreciated.

Not to be a downer, but it's worth considering that those students may have just picked up an MA along the way.

Very excited!!!

Just had a Skype meeting with Oliver Sensen at Tulane. Will definitely be accepting my offer from them. We have exactly the same vision for my project, for me in the program, and ultimately career-wise afterwards. 

Hope this helps people on the waitlists at Western Ontario, Tennessee, Boston U, Syracuse, Purdue, and Baylor, although I don't know about my exact position on those waitlists. 

Very happy to have made a final decision and be done with the stress of this season! 

Thank you to everyone for their solidarity and support this season!

Thank you everyone! 

Now comes the hard part - telling my supervisor at my current PhD program that I'm leaving. Any suggestions? 

Interesting. Just out of curiosity, did you get the letters from the faculty members at your current PhD program?
