  1. Hi everyone, I'm from China, have identified myself as a Confucian since 17 years old. I spent nearly six years in department of philosophy studying Chinese philosophy but roughly six months ago I realized that I want to do something practical to spread Confucius Teaching instead of doing academic work in a College. I think M.Div. programs offer the education I need. I hope to establish Confucian organizations ( monasteries, actually ) in future and spread Confucius Teaching to common people in China. The courses on arts of ministry are exactly what I want. Here are some details about me: Bachelor of philosophy from a TOP 10 university in China. GPA 3.6 Working on my Master of philosophy in TOP 2 university in China GPA 3.6 GRE v162 q164 awa3.5 ( I know my writing is lame but that's what I got....); TOFEL 106 One of my letter will be from a professor in Harvard religion study. Well as far as I know there's no one yet have ever applied for m.div. as a Confucian.I feel pretty thrilled yet helpless to be the first one. I've sent several emails to figure out which of those divinity schools would be willing to enroll a Confucian in m.div. and my conclusion is that 1) Harvard and Chicago University seem pretty welcome to the " Diversity" I may bring to them. 2) Yale and Boston College said that I'm "eligible" to apply, but they are not sure whether I will be fit to the programs. 3) UTS said I can try to apply but they don't think their program would be beneficial to me. So folks, I'm gonna ask the question that have been asked for hundreds of times here: Do I have a chance to make it to Harvard or Chicago University? Also: Do you guys know any other divinity school that is likely to enroll me? First timer here. I would appreciate any advice and information. Thank you!
