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

I wish. Nope, I'm leaving the program with another MA (this time in HPS). If I didn't get in anywhere, I intended to stay and finish out the program. But now that I've been accepted somewhere, I'm definitely taking the MA and leaving after this semester.

Getting two PhDs, however, is not hugely uncommon. For example, Massimo Pigliucci has two, and I have a friend who (relatively) recently got a PhD in Neuroscience from MIT and afterwards got a PhD in Philosophy from NYU. She's wicked smaht.

I got into Pittsburgh HPS today! Super stoked! 

Congrats! That's quite the first response. They have a great program. 

Also, for the IU HPS waitlists: Please e-mail me if you want to discuss the program here.

Congratulations! I remember you from last years threads :)
