Episcopal seminaries' enrollment statistics show varying trends (Episcopal Life)

TESM didn't submit their numbers (and who can blame them really they dont' have anything to prove to TEC) , Sewanee did not mention that many of her seminarians are Methodists but here's the report:

Episcopal News Service] The average age of people enrolled in the seminaries associated with the Episcopal Church continues to range from the high 30s to the mid 40s.
Episcopal News Service contacted all 11 seminaries this fall, asking them for specific information about their incoming classes, as well as their student bodies as a whole. Not all of the information requested is compiled in the same way from seminary to seminary, and thus apples-to-apples comparisons are not always possible.
It is also worth noting that most seminaries now offer degree and certificate programs beyond the traditional Master of Divinity degree sought by most people in the ordination process.
Most seminaries showed enrollments ranging near to what they had experienced in recent years. Whether male or female students form the majority varies from seminary to seminary.

Here for the rest.
