An open-access spreadsheet about philosophy graduate program admissions which includes information about application deadlines, fees, requirements, funding packages, and so on, as well as links to the programs, has been updated for the upcoming admissions season.The spreadsheet is maintained by Linds Whittaker, a graduate student in philosophy at the University of Washington.
The information he provides on the spreadsheet is the information he gets via department websites, and so notes a few ambiguities:
- “GRE not required” can mean either “optional” or “don’t send it, we won’t look at it” depending on the university/department.
- “Official transcript” can mean either “we need a hardcopy official transcript” or “upload a copy of the official transcript with your online application” depending on the university/department.
- Some inconsistent deadlines between department websites and graduate school’s pages on department deadlines.
There’s also the possibility of broken links at department websites and the absence of information, such as an application deadline.
If you notice any errors on the Google spreadsheet, you can note them in the comments here and/or email corrections to Linds Whittaker.
The spreadsheet is below and also available here.
