What impressed you positively?

"pretty much everything - students, curriculum, facilities. Curriculum provides for a ton of flexibility and/or time off. The students seem incredibly happy here and well-adjusted. They made it very clear that if you're ultra-competitive, this is not the place for you." -Posted 09/06/2003 | Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Students did complain about parking, but if you live in the right place it becomes a non-isssue." -Posted 09/06/2003 | Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Members of the admissions committee go out to Two Rows afterwards with everyone. Although you're already ranked based on that day's interview, you will still be ranked against upcoming interviewers. The point is, behave while you're there and know that pretty much anyone you talk to could be on the admissions committee." -Posted 09/06/2003 | Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Baylor is extremely impressive. This is my first interview, and they set an incredibly high standard for other schools to try and match. Plus, the tuition is incredibly low. This is a top-tier school and you could come out of here with less than $100K in debt very easily. If they accept me I'll very likely be coming." -Posted 09/06/2003 | Report Response
