Dr. Shane Posted May 19 Share Posted May 19 I got my letter of acceptance today for Texas A&M Kingsville. I will be taking one class in the Fall. I earned my master's degree in marriage and family therapy at the Seventh-day Adventist university in Mexico. There are a handful of classes that were not offered in that program that are part of the graduate programs in Texas. Thus, I will be taking a couple classes each year for the next few years to fill in the gaps. If I were to go full-time, I could complete all of them in two semesters but I don't plan to do that. Counseling is a ministry I do but I earn a living in construction management. I don't know exactly where God is taking me but for now, I plan to continue doing what He has me doing. Getting accepted into A&M was a hurdle. My undergraduate GPA from Minnesota State was not good enough for me to get accepted as a graduate student. I had to get my Mexican transcripts evaluated professionally. That cost about $300. Then, I had to get my master's degree legalized in Mexico (a process not done in the US) and have the school there send my documents directly to A&M via DHL. That whole process cost me over $600. Those costs made the $25 application fee look pretty small. My GPA from graduate school in Mexico was 4.0 so, that is how I got into A&M. I will not graduate from A&M. I will just take a few classes. This is all for ministry. Let's see where God leads me. phkrause 1 Quote Pastoral Family Counselor...
