"I got the impression that students at Baylor are a nice blend of smart, kind, and down-to-earth. It's a great school without the Ivy League feel, which I appreciate. And for those of you who may want to go to Baylor out of state and have not yet applied: the best way to get an interview is to let admissions know you are interested REPEATEDLY! That's how I got my interview. " -Posted 03/07/2007 | Report Response
