Rankings of top theological institutes in US

For those of you who might be interested.

Ranking of US seminaries for doctorate programmes, according to the First Things Aug 30th article.

1. Duke Divinity School
2. Notre Dame
3. Princeton University
4. Boston College
5. Catholic U, Princeton TS, Trinity Evangelical Seminary

Others mentioned included Chicago, Harvard, Vanderbilt, Emory and Yale. As a Methodist, I am quite happy to see First Things, a conservative periodical putting Duke as top. Again, the rankings are one based on the contributor's experience and knowledge about the faculty and programmes there.

Rankings are not only subjective to a large extent. It is also constantly shifting and there are many other factors besides faculty quality.
