Links (in no particular order)
- The Philosophical Gourmet Report
- Contains widely read (and widely debated) rankings of graduate programs in philosophy. I'm not convinced that this is of terrible significance, but I get asked about it often enough that I figure I'd offer the link here.
- Guidelines on Writing a Philosophy Paper
- By no means the only such document available, this is at least a decent place to start. (Of course, an even better place to start is a conversation with your teacher...)
