Damon,I did not count the cost the way you did in your first paragraph. After rideang what you wrote, I realized that I had some basic assumptions such as proximity (I only lived 4 hours from SBTS before we moved) and lodging (I knew people I could stay with for free) as well as job (vacation and two-income families). Your talking even more if you add in food expense.As I think of those, I am very empathetic to your point. However, and this does not take away from the empathy, let us say you manage to finish your degree in five years. Then, according to this chart from a year ago and your estimate travel expenses, you are still coming out $15,000 ahead overall compared to the next cheapest (Fuller) seminary. This is assuming you are SBC. I guess it all comes down to perspective and how much your seminary training matters to you. I had the chance to go to Covenant back home in St. Louis, but desired more to attend SBTS if I had the opportunity even though that has meant a huge change in finances (check out my diary!) and family affairs. Still, I think you make some valid points that should be considered. Obviously, I was making assumptions that were not fair to what you were saying.Terry Delaneys last blog post..
