    MDIV to MTS

    Oh definitely. It's certainly worth applying. I would just imagine that in a lot of places they'll prefer an MA or MTS as well.

    MDIV to MTS

    To pile on to what everyone has already said, I don't really see moving straight from an M.Div to a PhD. An MA, MTS, or STM at a tier one school would likely get you there though.

    PhD Applications Fall 2019 Season

    I presented at their student religious symposium and found their graduate students to be as (or more) capable than many of the students I've met at Ivy League schools. They understand that the name value for their program won't get them where they want to go, so they bust ass and work hard. Goff is apparently an amazing advisor and is an equally great scholar. If you don't want to do Hellenistic Judaism or DSS, I personally wouldn't go. I applied and was accepted, but they knew my focus is on much earlier stuff. They said it might be better to go elsewhere; I ended up working on a second M* degree and am happy with my current institution. I have nothing but positive things to say about the students and faculty in that program.

    To my knowledge, MTS can take a while. They frequently offer MTS spots to PhD interviewees that they want to keep in house.

    I would think that all of the invites have gone out at this point. I know people who have received invitations in all of the various subfields.

    Per the first question, no. I know a couple of internal and a couple of external candidates who have received invites. Honestly, I think a lot of it depends on which professor is sending the emails. Some people were getting emails at like midnight last year. No one should stress or anything if they haven't gotten a letter yet. It takes the course of a day to get most of the out. No one freak out yet!

    Apologies. "Letters." Emails are going out today for some. It occasionally happens over 2, SOMETIMES 3 days.

    FYI, Notre Dame letters are going out today and possibly some in the couple of days that follow. Some friends have gotten letters from CJA and HC. I have no idea about Liturgy, ST, MT, or WRWC.

    That's very likely. It may just have been faculty from my area meeting today. Or others met and I didn't know about it.

    Possibly. But that's only internal applicants. I have no idea how many outside applicants are applying. Word on the street is that they're meeting this afternoon to discuss applicants.

    There are fewer internal applicants across the board, but significantly more internal applicants in History of Christianity from what I've heard.

    Nothing for ND. I don't even think I've heard about the professors meeting to discuss potential applicants yet. Interview weekend is usually late February so I assume the meeting to figure out who they're inviting will be soon. Acceptances usually go out a couple of days after the interview weekend.

    I'm surprised this thread isn't popping off more at this point. I was a giant, shaking ball of neuroses at this point last year. Kudos to y'all for keeping your cool!

    Response times for popular journals within the field

    It's no worries! I've had a couple of bad experiences with SBL, hence my frustration. Hoping that the wait isn't too too long on this journal submission. It wasn't bench rejected, which is always good! haha.

    Response times for popular journals within the field

    I should rephrase. I think that taking 16 months to get back to someone about whether or not they can start working on a book review for a journal (particularly one like RBL that puts out so many reviews) is ridiculous. Experiencing wait-time on hearing about an article, which obviously takes a lot of time to read and critique, is far more understandable.
