chodson Posted June 24, 2014 Share Posted June 24, 2014 Hi all, Quick question...looking to pursue an MAR comprehensive at YDS. I came into my undergrad thinking I wanted to study theology and teach and have since moved away from it. At Loyola Maryland, I'm now an cross-disciplinary Global Studies major which consists of courses in political science, economics, sociology, and history. I am also a writing minor with a specialty in creative non-fiction. Having taken this courses and having a couple internships under my belt, my original academic and intellectual passion has become clear - I want to continue to study theology. I plan to take an MTS course at Loyola in the fall so I can be sure its still there for me. The Yale MAR seems to be a good program out there that combines a lot of what I enjoy. The career and academic paths some have taken after receiving the degree seem interesting. What do you think my shot is with a 3.8 GPA and being a non-theology major. I will have taken four theology courses by graduation. I am also the student body president...but I doubt that'd matter much applying to Yale where most everyone else has been, too. Any pointers? Also looking at the MA at ND but that seems like apples and oranges. I am studying for the GRE, but I still think their MTS would be a long-shot.
