    Hummel, I'm alsmost certain that the French situation means NOTHING!!!!
    Remember:
    1) Just because you have seen some French offers, does not mean that the department has even looked at your application yet - it may be at the bottom of the pile
    AND, (more importantly)
    2) Your application has to be cleared by both departments, therefore the only time you should start worrying is when Philosophy offers start to come through as well (which is when we'll ALL be worried!!!)

    Do not let these French offers worry you!

    Awwww thanks you two for cheering me up!!

    I didn't know that the application had to go through both departments before a final decision is made

    Oh dear... yeah but that will propably still take quite some time until they will start with the Philosophy offers... they have a reputation to be quite slow I have heart

    by logging onto hotmail, seeing that my track status had been updated, logging into UCAS and seeing that glorious word "Unconditional" sitting next to St Andrews!

    any news for anyone else?

    Congrats Millie!
    Hi, i have a question for you if you dont mind.i applied for philosophy and mod history and i was really really hoping for an offer since oxford rejected. i was really stoked about st andrews but i just read your posts about how totally analytical sta philosophy is and you almost made me cry. i am really very much into ancient greek philosophy but most of all into kierkegard, nietzsche schopenhauer, sartre or heidegger. i know this is weird but on the uni website i noticed that the department is quite analytical but a good number of tutors had subjects like moral or political philosophy etc so i thought it would be ok, but from what you said it seems like there is no continental stuff at all. so basically my question is this are there pretty much no classes or tutorials or however you call it in the philosophers i have mentioned above? because if yes i am totally screwed...

    Sorry, there is no opportunity to do continental here, and none of the philosophers you mention will come up (with the possible exception of Schopenhauer, very obtusely).

    Many tutors do indeed have interests in political and moral philosophy (as a student, that's my interest too) but it's overwhelmingly analytic in nature; lots of Rawls and meta-ethics, little else.

    Will I be disadvantaged having brought up Sartre on my personal statement then? Though I am also heavily interested in that kind of Philosophy, I feel I can teach myself it quite well and I'd like to expand into new grounds like analytic philosophy.
