Also, I don't know how HDS is, but at YDS, it's really easy to take downtown classes in other departments- you just have to get a piece of paper signed.

I'm not sure exactly what the criteria is for getting into YDS, or what the exact connection is between faculty and applications, but I assume there is a great deal of emphasis on your statement of purpose and writing sample. I was accepted to YDS for a concentrated MAR with a BA from a small, private, liberal arts college with a degree in biblical studies. When I applied I had 2 years Spanish/1 year Koine/2 years Biblical Hebrew and a graduated with honors. I also took a year off be
