I am horrible at making concrete, set, firm decisions. I have a love/hate relationship with options and choices. I love examining them, processing, thinking through, weighing out the pros and cons, ect. Yet the more options I have the harder and longer I take in making a decision! Plus, I defend and criticize every side, every angle, every outcome. I prefer discussing each side thoroughly than making a decision.
My thoughts lately have turned to graduate school/seminary. This turns into a litany of ratings, schools, programs, likes, desires, requirements. Do I do the SemPM program at Bethel? Or would I rather get a Masters of Counseling? Or what about Marriage and Family Counseling from Bethel Sem.? What about writing? Or maybe I want to go to Northwestern for their M.A.T.s program? Or a teaching license? Better yet, what about law school or political science or history? Do I apply now or wait a year? Who do I use as my references and what about my letters of intent?
You get the picture. The questions go on and on 🙂 I’ll let you know if I ever make a decision!
One thought on “Options Galore”
Hello, as I read your post I made a decision to drop a comment here. What I want to suggest will definitely broaden your options in choosing graduate school/seminary. There is a great graduate school in CA that has an extension overseas in Eastern Europe, in country of Ukraine. Talbot School of Theology (graduate school of BIOLA Univ) offers here in Ukraine a MA degree in Biblical and Theological Studies, diversified emphasis. Thus applying to study at this extension you can broaden your cultural experience, make a lot of new friends and get quality degree in new exciting setting. Here is Kyiv Seminary page: http://www.ktsonline.org/new/content/category/4/20/204/lang,en/
