I Got Into Grad School!

I found out today I got into the Master’s program at Yale Divinity in the History of Christianity I applied for! Looks like I’ll be moving to New Haven this fall! I’m super excited, and @swamidass said I should share :slight_smile: Hopefully, I’ll have more time to hang around here and cause trouble now!



It’s always nice to see people pursuing careers that excite them.

Hopefully they will teach the “true” history of Christianity. :wink:

Basically, the work I’m looking at is about how Christian theology got twisted by narratives of American Exceptionalism/nationalism and was then used to oppress Native Americans.

Walt: Dad, what's gradual school?
Garp: Gradual school?
Walt: Yeah. Mom says her work's more fun now that she's teaching
      gradual school.
Garp: Oh. Well, gradual school is someplace you go and gradually
      find out that you don't want to go to school anymore

So, not planning on presenting the work at CPAC, I guess. :sunglasses:


That’s the funniest thing I’ve read all day! But seriously, congrats @TWReynolds!

@TWReynolds, it was great to meet you at the Genealogical Adam & Eve workshop. Congrats and good luck! My chemistry colleague did her PhD at Yale and enjoyed her time in New Haven.


Congrats @TWReynolds! Enjoy your time as a graduate student – it flies!
