Your assumption seems reasonable to me!
DEAC deferred their decision on West Coast Bible College and Seminary as of March 1, 2022. Not a positive development, for sure.
What EXACTLY does that mean?
Where did you obtain this info? I didn't see it on the DEAC website.
If you say so, Michael. I checked the DEAC site and as of this moment, they haven't yet reported on a meeting of March 1st. Do you have inside info? And if you mean simply that DEAC has not yet come to a decision -I wouldn't take that as a negative development. After all, the entire accreditation process for Nations U. took several years from start to finish. There was a re-start (or two) and some complicating issues - the delays had nothing to do with academic standards, etc. Sometimes - it just takes what it takes. And sometimes - bingo - it doesn't. Please tell us exactly what you mean, here. This is interesting.
Not necessarily. Denial would have not been a positive development. Deferred may just mean they want more documentation or demonstration of compliance.
Yes, I do say so (why is that in question?). What I mean is that DEAC merely deferred the commission's vote. See the attachment from WCBCS:
I subscribed to their email list and I received the information therein. See my comment to Johann.
Judging from the aforementioned email, a deferment doesn't seem like a positive development. Although I agree, the deferment is intended to afford the institution a demonstration of compliance.
It's not. I respect your opinion. Bad choice of words, obviously. No intention to offend. If it did, my sincere apologies.
"If you say so" is a common rhetorical device for conceding a point so as to move on, while still maintaining skepticism about it.
Yes it is. And I intended no personal insinuation by using it. Again, sorry if such was perceived.
Thanks for that bit of extraordinarily common information, patronizing as it is.
You acted like you didn't know that. I took you at your word.
