Graduation Rate

Loading...
21%
BELOW AVERAGE

Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary graduation rate is below the national average.

21% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary completed the education program and got a degree in 150 percent of the expected time of completion.

The graduation rate value includes only programs that were completed less than six years for four-year degrees or less than three years for two-year degrees.

Graduation rate is the percentage of institution’s new-entering, first-time, first-year undergraduate students who complete their program within 150% of the published time for the program. Graduation rate excludes an extensive number of students. This indicator doesn’t take into consideration students of nontraditional enrollments - part-time students, students who enroll mid-year, and who transfer from one institution to another. So graduation rate alone can create a misleading perception. Completion rate in the form of total number of students receiving any types of awards/degrees creates a complete picture. Combining this data with graduation rate is a better way to compare institutions.

{PLEASE READ THIS WHOLE REVIEW} As a kid that lived here for 4 whole years, I can say a few things about this campus. First of all, the chapel, student center, library, and the offices there were very clean, very modern though, but I don't have a problem with it being modern. The front of the campus looked absolutely beautiful, the grass was fertilized well, and was cut properly. Classes were magnificent apparently. However, housing was an absolute nightmare. Once you get to housing, everything just goes downhill. The grass was dead looking, and was not cut on a regular basis. The apartments were rotting on the outside, wooden panels were cracking and had major water damage, and the paint on it was cracking. Some of the apartments were even VANDALIZED with spray-paint. Every time there was a storm. big or little, the power lines were so sensitive, that the power went out, and stayed out for hours. Also, the place was always a construction zone. Once they built one thing, they started building another, which was quite annoying. Now, let's move on to Security and Campus Operations. The Campus Ops for the apartments were not very good. They kept forgetting to replace our air filter, and every time they checked our smoke detectors, they always messed up or something, because after they did, our smoke detectors kept beeping every now-and-then. Every time they had to fix something underground, whether it be electrical, or water related, etc, they would always end up hitting a water pipe, or gas pipe. This caused basically the whole campus to go without water or gas, until they fixed it. One time they hit the gas line, and it was so bad, that the had to bring a little house down to the end of Carey Court. The little house was a shower house, and it had many showers in it. That was a very nice thing for those people to do. Also, whenever there is something in the grass while they are mowing the grass, instead of moving it, they just ran over it. My friend's bike, and pogo-stick were ran over by Ops. They also ran over a piece of wood once, and it shot at my friend, causing her to bleed badly. But instead of asking if she was okay, they just stared at here, and started a conversation. Moving on to Security. Security was very rude to the children there. Us kids used to always ride our bikes in the road, but we did it very safely. We stopped at stop signs, yielded at yield signs, waited for cars to pass by, moved over to the curb if there was a car behind us, so they could pass, but a security guard, who I will not mention his name, considered us to be a hazard in the road, and that if we rode our bikes in the road, they would give our parents a $100 fine. I refused to listen to him, and I rode my bike in the road. Also, my friends and I used to always dumpster dive, until that same security guard yelled at us. That's when I actually stepped in to the conversation. I told him that if he keeps messing with us, we would get our parents, because there is nothing wrong with dumpster diving. I have found probably hundreds of dollars worth of electronics in those dumpsters, and they are in my house right now. Another thing, Security used to always put tickets on cars if they didn't register them, which was absolutely ridiculous. That's basically all I have to say about this campus. Most of the neighbors there were very nice, but the place was being run like a 3 year old was running it. I'm disappointed at this place.
