You're fairness and understanding are most impressive Cindi
I guess I don't see myself as fair or understanding here. Perhaps I'm being more pragmatic: I'm not going to get into that class; I found a class elsewhere (Lutheran School of Theology, Chicago) that filled the requirement; I left it to those with more authority than I (faculty and staff at CTS) to deal with the issue; and it's a bit late (a year after the fact) for me to make an issue of it with NBTS.
I'm sure the folks at NBTS would consider me unfair, as I am advocating for them to accept as a student someone who is in flagrant violation of their rules and the Bible.
I don't see myself as particularly understanding, either, as I reject the notion that they can be true to their covenant with the other schools while applying their admission standards to students cross-registering from other schools. (I would imagine, for instance, that CTS might not accept some NBTS students in the MDiv program, but would accept them into classes through ACTS).
What about sharing this forum thread with your adviser? Often these uncomfortable things get brushed under the rug until someone eventually trips on them.
I may bring it up with the registrar, particularly the issue of alerting students to NBTS's policy.
