17. Again, take this for what it's worth..
but when life is difficult, I tell myself "I got through CPE. I'll get through this." No reason to think you're experience will be the same. I think the whole system has improved in the 20 years since then.

Are you hoping to do chaplaincy, or an MDiv later, or something? I have a friend who's an Orthodox Christian woman, so can't be ordained, but has done a bunch of CPE and works as a hospital chaplain. I don't know her in that capacity, but I'd be willing to bet she's as good a chaplain as any ordained clergy on the planet.

I really hope you have a great experience, and find a way to make use of all you learn!
