I received notification in the mail today that my application for non-degree study at the Baptist Theological Seminary at Richmond has been accepted. I also received my first summer assignment, so it just got "real". Woo!
Update: Non-degree means I can take up to 10 classes for credit - the real difference is that I still need to secure a church recommendation and references, and I had a time crunch this semester. I'll be fully admitted for Spring, but it's really semantics at this point as I continue with the paperwork. The biggest hurdle is cleared.
