"Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary does an excellent job of preparing seminarians for ministry in the real world. Their strengths lie in biblical exegesis and in equipping men and women to becoming pastors and faithful servants of the Bible. If desired, this place can become a real gold mine for anyone with the right attitude and skills to learn and be a good student. The cons of this place might be its location and lack of adequate transportation. For students without cars, it can feel lonesome and separated from the real world."

"Great network, great academics, great school. However, the studies feel isolated and very theoretical sometimes."

"There is a great deal of support and encouragement for you to succeed, unlike undergraduate school where it was a process of "weeding you out." The staff and professors are extremely approachable and unpretentious. The curriculum is very challenging and immediately applicable. I'm enjoying GCTS very much!"

"Provided students with knowledge and tools to grow in competence and proficiency; excellent scholars and teachers. However, it can be tough to develop relationships with professors and students."

"For me, Gordon-Conwell offers an opportunity for students to develop into individuals of character, with an ethically sound worldview that acknowledges the reality of the twenty-first century, and works to find ways to change people's minds, thereby influencing better decisions. Another positive is that in the seminar community, we work with the same textual tradition for the most part, so all students can relate to one another on more than one level, making the community a brotherhood. The most noticeable con is the cost of education. It is no secret that pastors, professors, etc do not make exorbitant amounts of money in their professions, so the amount of accrued debt can be a serious burden in the future if it is not managed correctly. All things considered, it is an investment that I am willing to make because I believe the returns will be worth the effort and sacrifice."
