For argument's sake, I went to University of Dallas and I would pit it over TAC (where Erik went) and Christendom (where many of my friends went). TAC is a close second. The advantage I think UD has over most schools it doesn't just teach you an excellent curriculum and solid theology (which it does) it also teaches you how to be a good theologian and philosopher. I think it does an excellent job of not only educating, but also preparing students to interact positively with the world around them. Not to mention, I had the opportunity to go to daily Mass and class with wonderful Hungarian Cistercians. I can see the perks of going to a school with four years of great books, but many of graduates from TAC by necessity had to go on to more schooling- I read just as much with two years of core and two years of theology and history. What do you think John?

P.S. I should add that I've visited TAC and I attend Christendom graduate school- I respect it but it is a lot easier than my undergrad at UD was, and a lot less thorough, just to be honest.

Ah, and UST Catholic Studies?

And, just how does a poor, American student go about attending the Angelicum?

GhandianCatholic,

Here is a link to show how to study at the Angelicum. It is remarkably inexpensive, as you will find if you explore the site below.

The expensive part is living in Rome.

Gandhian Catholic, I wrote up a bit about my application process here: http://givetongue.blogspot.com/ (it's a clean website, promise - it's a pun on a saint's relic) - you may or may not find that useful.

I never thought of it like that, but it really is true.

Wyoming Catholic College and Ave Maria are good, too.
