    Get involved! (Though don't over extend yourself). There's plenty to do, both in relation to your studies, to serve the community, and to just have fun!

    Apply early! Do not leave anything off of your application and don't be afraid of tuition costs of a private school, scholarships are easy to get for almost any student. When you get here as a freshman, go to Line Camp, get out of your dorm and don't be afraid to introduce yourself to people. Apply for every scholarship you can and follow your dreams.

    if you're looking for a community that will love you, accept you, support you, and challenge you in every aspect of your life, you've found the right place. coming from the northeast, where many people are closed off and almost unbaringly independent, i couldn not have imagined such a place as baylor. i had no idea there were colleges with such community and involvement. in your application process, please do all you can to experience the life of community here. spend the night in a dorm, visit a church event, go to vertical, talk to a professor, sit in on a class, go to a sporting event, get some coffee at common grounds. this university is a healer for loneliness and isolation. explore all that baylor has to offer you.

    for any prospective students, i would definitely start applying to as many scholarships possible in order to help lower tuition costs. although baylor is expensive, the school does offer financial help depending on your grades and sat/act scores. if you have average sat/act scores, i would recommend getting them as high as possible as it can increase the amount of an academic scholarship from baylor. apart from the admissions and money aspect, i would highly recommend visiting the campus to get a feel of the school and the town itself because you must enjoy the environment if you choose to make it your home for the next 4 years. during the tour, take the opportunity to meet with the admissions counselor and financial aid counselor. come prepared with any questions as it may help with your decision of attending baylor. while you're still in high school, it is a smart choice to take ap and dual credit classes because taking an ap exam or a dual credit class is cheaper than a college course and can allow you to get a head start on getting out of a few freshman courses. for dual credit, check with your counselor to ensure that the class credit transfers to baylor. for ap classes, you can search on the baylor website to know what scores they take for the class you are wanting to get credit for.
