No PhilDisc Tomorrow – Go Learn About Grad School

Hi Everyone!

Just wanted to remind you that there will be no PhilDisc tomorrow (Wednesday, 7 March).  However, there will be a discussion about grad school in philosophy led by our very own Prof. David Brink!  Come learn about the whole (mildly terrifying) process of crafting your application, choosing your programs, and begging for letters.

Depending on attendance and demand, we may offer a similar discussion next quarter from the perspective of recent applicants and grad students themselves!  Let us know if you’re interested!
