Hmmm, interesting. Currently I am a student going for my B.D. in International Relations witha religious minor and a certain veer toward Asian subjects.
Currently I am going in for the Army ROTC they have here at campus and right now the two careers I have in mind is Intelligence and Chaplain.
I wonder....should I transfer to University of the West and earn my BD in Religious studies and practice as a Priest untill I am eligible to be accepted or should I stay where I am and (Try to get) MI but work on getting my BD at the University of the West with my college benefits....
