What's Your Opinion of Western Seminary?

Hey everyone, 

I was wondering if there is anyone out there who has been to Western Seminary (Portland OR). They have some extension campuses and one of them is in San Jose, CA where I live. I have been looking into them as a possible option since they are close to where I already pastor. However, they are non-denominational so I expect to get a wide view of views.

Would like to get any input from those who are familiar with this Seminary...

I believe their roots are the Conservative Baptist Association.  They consider themselves conservative in theology and more progressive in their philosophy of ministry........

I believe Millard J. Erickson used to teach there. His systematic theology text, Christian Theology, is very widely used. 

Tyler is a pastor in Olympia, WA and works in State government. He's the author of the book What's It Mean to Be a Baptist?
