  1. I was wondering if anyone had any insight on Candler School of Theology (Emory University)? I've been accepted into the M.Div. program there with full funding, but I've also been accepted into a couple of other schools that I know are more well-known. While funding is a significant piece of the puzzle in deciding where to attend, I don't want to go someplace just because they're offering me 100% tuition, especially when I've received slightly less but comparable financial aid at a couple of other schools. I've done a bit of research on Candler, but I can't seem to find a whole lot of specific information on it. Answers to the following questions would be helpful: 1.) Is Candler a reputable school? Would a degree from Candler hold the same weight as a degree from someplace like Duke Divinity or Princeton Seminary? 2.) Would an M.Div. from Candler prepare and set me up well for Ph.D work later on down the road? 3.) Is connecting with professors and networking at Candler relatively easy or challenging? 4.) Anything about Candler that could a drawback or any red flags? Any thoughts?
  2. Hello GradCafe-verse, I’m in the process of sending off applications to grad school for my MDiv. I wanted to begin correspondence here with other applicants for Fall 2020 or current MDiv students. ALL VOICES WELCOME! My intentions are not to wear a collar, in all reality, but to work in NGOs, nonprofits and public policy for social justice and global conflict transformation. Right now, I’m planning on applying to Emory/Candler, Yale, Duke, Boston University... as they all offer an MDiv with the particular focus I’m looking for. Right now, I’m not certain these are the only places to which I’ll apply. They are certainly my top choices. I’m coming in with an average GPA but an impressive CV (I attended a liberal arts school). Hoping to begin correspondence with you all!
  3. I've been accepted to Candler's School of Theology for my MDiv. Stressful thing is, I was offered half-tuition, leaving me with $10,000 I have to come up with per year. As a nondemonimational Christian, ministry scholarships are hard to come by. I really, really don't want to take out so much in loans and be stuck with debt for the rest of my life. I'm really torn and upset because this was the only graduate school I applied to (I didn't want to leave out of state and the decision to apply to seminary wasn't until the end of my first semester as a senior) I guess I just don't know what to do. I would really, really love to go and I have absolutely fell in love with the staff and school when I visited. Anyone know of any scholarships that I could qualify for (as a nondenominational Christian.) I put this in the decisions post because really, would it be worth it to accept the grant and pull out loans? If anyone knows about Emory, will I be able to negotiate with financial aid for more money? If worse comes to worst, I'm going to have to decline the grant and do a gap year, which I do not want to do. I have to find what I should do all in three weeks
