While I tend to agree with Paul's point (I attend what I think is one of
the few exceptional schools in this regard), I think Carl's
generalization holds true in at least this light: Less conservative
schools are much less likely to even consider the MajT as possibly
superior. It's only the more conservative seminaries that might think
so, although most of them don't.
