I have a BTL and I’m sure a lot of others do. I wanted to know the community colleges or the cheaper ones who accept a BTL for most of the credits in order to start a masters degree very soon?February 9, 2020 8:53 pm at 8:53 pm #1830353bk613Participant
Community colleges don’t give masters degrees. Do you have any idea what you want to go into? Social Work, law, medicine, business?February 9, 2020 8:54 pm at 8:54 pm #1830347GadolhadorahParticipant
To those who are not familiar with the acronym, it stands for Bachelor of Talmudic Law. And in response to the question, see the nearly 100 posts responding to essentially the same question here in the CR 10 years ago.
And not much has changed in 10 years.February 10, 2020 6:54 am at 6:54 am #1830382Shimon NodelParticipant
If you don’t have a high school diploma or equivalent, the answer is noneFebruary 10, 2020 8:32 am at 8:32 am #1830409akupermaParticipant
Accept for what? Pursing a law degree or a medical degree or an advanced degree in ancient Near Eastern languages? Of are you applying for a job as a janitor or a clerk? And with what additional credentials (high school diploma/GRE, college credit from someplace accredited in secular subjects, real world experience doing something?).
Especially with good supporting credentials such as good GRE scores, good grades in secular subjects from a university as good or better than the one you are applying to, and relevant experience, one can often talk one’s way into a graduate program (albeit with “deficiencies”). It often helps if you are applying to a private uneversity (they are much more flexible) and in many cases it helps if you offering to pay full tuition (which in fields is NEVER the usual practice).February 10, 2020 9:10 am at 9:10 am #18304171Participant
If you don’t have a regular college degree you can’t just waltz into a masters program. The only profession where people hack it is Law and they get very high scores on their LSAT.February 10, 2020 3:55 pm at 3:55 pm #1830508Reb EliezerParticipant
If you want to take law, prepare well for the LSAT (Law Aptitude Scholastic Test) by taking the Kaplan course.February 11, 2020 8:11 am at 8:11 am #1830725MTABParticipant
you might be able to get credits at empire state college in ny or Thomas Edison state college in NJ for your degree and then complete your bachelor’s degree there.February 11, 2020 11:13 pm at 11:13 pm #1831058smerelParticipant
It depends on the Yeshiva that issued it.
If they are accredited by AARTS then most community colleges will accept it or at least credit asif it were a degree in humanities or any other non specialized knowledge.
Call up COPE or PCS to discuss it. They also work with colleges like Fairleigh Dickinson University and can give you a masters degree through themFebruary 12, 2020 9:14 am at 9:14 am #1831119
