Tell me about your seminary experience

We are now starting the second week of classes at DTS. Everything appears to be off to a great start, but the pessimist in me says that means it can only get worse! If you are in seminary, I would love to hear your thoughts and reflections on how the year has started for you. What has struck you as especially positive? What's getting under your skin and making you frustrated? Whatever your comments might be, good or bad, I'd love to hear them and reflect with you on your experience so far. I'd love to hear from non-DTS students, too, so if you have a friend who has recently started seminary at another school, please send them a link to this post and encourage them to respond. I've been in the DTS community for so long that I'm out of touch with life at other institutions. Please help me out with some insight into seminary life elsewhere. Thanks in advance!
