Philosophy PhD -- successful applicant

I applied to 17 PhD programs in philosophy.

I just got my first response Saturday: State University of New York at Buffalo has accepted me with funding. WHAT.

That's amazing! Especially the having things paid for!

Congrats!

Who would you be working with, or is that a decision you would make much later?
