What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 1)?

"Do you have any questions for me? One of the interviewers kept asking me this over and over again. I had a few pre-prepared but ran out after 6 of them and had to think them up on the spot which is a bit difficult when you're nervous." -Posted 11/29/2004 | Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The curriculum that allows time for exploring your interests. Also, you can ask about research without them thinking you're trying to get brownie points. You're encouraged to do research here. " -Posted 11/29/2004 | Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The student tour was very disorganized. The students seemed a bit too laid back and talked about how little time they spent studying and in lab. Their selling point was how much less work their school is compared to others. Also, they kept saying how much better their school is than the one next door (Personally, I was more impressed with UT-Houston than Baylor)." -Posted 11/29/2004 | Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That the most Baylor has is its name. There really is nothing wrong with this school and is probably a great place for some people but not right for me. The laid-back conceited types are not who I want to spend 4 years with." -Posted 11/29/2004 | Report Response

What are your general comments?

"These interviews were a bit more stressful than at other schools. I was not wowed by Baylor as everyone expects you to be." -Posted 11/29/2004 | Report Response
