Hi, after reading some on this forum, I would like to ask for some advice. I'm currently a m.div student looking for a Th.M program. Since I have few unique conditions, I'll explain my background before seeking advice. 1. I'm an international(Korean to be specific) 2. I've graduated with an US undergrad degree. (Small Conservative Evangelical Undergrad) (3.3 GPA) 3. Currently attending an evangelical M.div program in Korea(military reasons in South Korea) (4.3 GPA on a 4.5 Scale / 3.8 for a 4.0 scale) 4. I'm a bit late to my application process. I should have started last year, but had too much on my plate at the time with finishing my M.div Thesis, Marriage and other personal reasons. 5. While coming from an evangelical background, I am no longer an inerrantist. Past experiences and events has changed my views. 6. Despite of my Korean school being evangelical, my academic references will be coming from professors with 1) non-conservative Top Tier US Ph.D program 2) Top Tier UK program. At this moment, the only school that I could attend immediately are SBC Th.M programs, but for Ph.D I'd like to attend Top Tier US programs in NT. I understand my chances to TT US Ph.D programs will be very thin if I finish out in SBC schools. So here are the options I'm considering. 1. Transfer to another Top Tier Th.M program after attending SBC Th.M for one year. 2. Wait for the next application season to apply for other Th.M programs (while preparing some stuff for further Ph.D) 3. Just attend the SBC Th.M program and prepare to apply for Top Tier Ph.D program or non-SBC evangelical school. 4. Possibly consider UK schools. I know it's a little hectic, but I hope I could get some advice. Thank you!
Hello all, I recently submitted an article for consideration for a fairly prominent journal in Hebrew Bible. As it would be my first non-book-review publication, I'm excited to hear back about an acceptance, rejection, or R&R. I was wondering if anyone could anecdotally speak to the typical turnaround times for journals to which they have submitted. I've heard CBQ has a goal time of about three months. I haven't heard anything outside of that, though.
Hey all, Starting this thread to help each other and let one another know where we applied, got accepted, denied or wait-listed. Also feel free to provide any other information such as funding, choosing one school over another, reasons why rejecting etc. Here is my list of applications and updates so far: USA Yale Div - MARc Philosophical Theology/Philosophy of Religion (waiting) Duke Div - MTS (accepted w/ 25% funding) - any idea how to get more? Wake Forest Div - MDiv (rejected) - was surprised to find out I was rejected BU SoT - MTS (waiting) Canada Wycliffe College (UofT) - MTS (waiting) Regent College - MTS (waiting) UK U of Oxford (Wycliffe Hall) - MTh (waiting) U of Cambridge - MPhil in Theology, Religion, and Philosophy of Religion (waiting) U Of Edinburgh - MPhil (waiting) U of St. Andrews - MTh (rejected) I'm also an international student, graduating with a B.A. in Theology from the historic Moody Bible Institute (Chicago, IL) Any ideas of funding available for international students? The idea of a loan kind of scares me. Best of luck everyone!
