At this school, the faculty actually cares about the students obtaining an understanding of how to apply knowledge to real-world scenarios. They are honest in stating that obtaining a degree does not guarantee success in this lifetime, but that it helps the student to obtain knowledge on how to react to the world. They are solid on doctrine, and while they have hosted some events that some students may not agree with doctrinally, it shows that they are open to scholarly research endeavors, which require diving into aspects of research that might not be agreed with. Overall, the best part about being a student here is that every course is applicable to life application. Compared to when I studied at University - where I was required to take courses that had no life application - Midwestern Seminary has set up their course curriculum to where it can be applied to the individual student’s life and endeavors; while each student may have to take a course, or courses, that may not seem applicable to their life endeavor(s) at face value, if the student(s) truly put in the effort to such courses, and really hone in on what is to be learned and understood in the course work, said student(s) will find applicability in the course; I never thought that I would be able to apply aspects of philosophy and psychology to my life since I am not heading in either of these directions for a career, but said courses have been some of the most educational, informative, and applicable courses to living my life, and my career endeavors. I would go as far as to say that Midwestern Baptist Seminary is one of the top seminaries in the county right now to study at, as well as one of the top schools overall to obtain higher education. While they may not be the most academically rigorous schools in the country, compared to other seminaries or state schools (public or private), the material is applicable, and you work for your degree. By the end of the program, you can truly say that this educational experience has helped in preparing you for life endeavors.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

No school is perfect, and Midwestern Baptist Seminary is no exception. I have had only one professor, who was an adjunct, that appeared to care more about making sure that his students met the requirements of the style manual, for assignments, more so than actually helping those of us in the class make real-world applications to the material. This is the only professor that I have had a negative experience with. Also, Midwestern Seminary hosted a conference that discussed theological aspects that I do not necessarily agree with. While this is something that I did not like, it goes back to the school being open to academic research endeavors. Therefore, prospective students need to be aware of the fact that there are going to be some issues discussed at this school, and probably any school one goes to, that the individual student does not agree with, or support. Keep an open mind, and discover the benefit of learning about something different. See where the research is coming from, and make your determination based on how said research compares to your personal convictions, which can apologetically be supported. Research is not just about supporting your personal beliefs and convictions - it also consists of looking into aspects of doctrine that you might not agree with, whether if only at face value, or from a deeper perspective. Overall, Midwestern Baptist Seminary is still a great school. Just be open to differentiating opinions that might come up between you, as the student, and the professor(s) and researchers that come to the school to present their research.
