I applied and was accepted- getting in was aNov 03 2007Neuroscience/Cognitive Science
I applied and was accepted- getting in was a joke, no essay required. If you actually want to go to Baylor, the best way to get in is just make sure you have a decent SAT score and class rank (top 33% I'd say), and make sure to visit the campus so you can decide whether or not it's really for you.
ACT: 24 SAT: 1910 Male
Not too difficultFeb 11 2007Public Policy
Not too difficult...have a 3.0 HS GPA and 24 ACT and you shouldn't have much of a problem.
ACT: 29 Female
I didn't do much to get into BaylorFeb 06 2007Political Science
I didn't do much to get into Baylor. I applied early and heard back early. Although I did have a high gpa and good ACT score, there are people here who got in on far less. The merit based scholarship is good and its worth taking the ACT or SAT again to get a score that puts you in the highest merit based scholarship. The application process is pretty simple, I don't think anyone who has an ounce of intelligence should have any problem getting in. A person without intelligence who had rich parents who went here, shouldn't have a problem either.
ACT: 29 Female
I had a 3Jan 21 2007Chemistry
I had a 3.82 college grade point average and did not get in. It was the only school that I applied to besides my local state school. I did not have to submit my high school grades but I had a 3.9 with a 35 on my ACT. I have no idea what Baylor is looking for (if you have to donate money or what) but all I know is that Baylor is a huge rich stuck up school with a bunch almost ALL WHITE kids. I know many kids that did not get into Baylor with super high grades and test scores also. They look a lot on you as a person (community involvement, reccomendations, alumni relation, etc)...It is very hard to get into and random even if you have good grades you must be well rounded.
ACT: 34 SAT: 1530 Male
When I applied, it was fairly easy to get intoDec 14 2006Interior Design
When I applied, it was fairly easy to get into. I just applied, wrote an essay and I was in.
ACT: 28 SAT: 1130 Female
