philosophy at mit

Apparently you should go to MIT for philosophy even though they have a tiny department. I often wonder how my life would have been different had I gone to some other graduate school — the size of Berkeley took me by surprise, even though I grew up around UIUC. I think I would have found Caltech too claustrophobic, which is why I ended up not going there. And UCSD managed to botch their recruitment effort spectacularly. But perhaps I should have taken a closer look at the faculty. As it stands, I feel very lucky that I found my advisor, since he wasn’t here when I showed up last year.
