Most Helpful Review for Baylor University

Perhaps my favorite thing about Baylor is the opportunity I have had as an honor student to have the interdisciplinary major called University Scholars. If you have high enough SAT's and enough AP classes and a good application essay, you can be excused from most undergrad required classes such as required English and Science classes. This means even as a Freshman you can begin your major classes. It also makes it easier to spend a semester doing an internship or to have multiple concentrations instead of a single major. That's not to mention that Baylor has small classes with involved teachers....

    Waco has become my new home. Baylor is the perfect University for students who want to receive quality education and make genuine friendships in a welcoming, Christian environment. Baylor has big name Athletics, but small class sizes- perfect for engaged learning.

    An amazing school with great academics and a wonderful social environment. Baylor, with its small classes, allows for the ultimate success of all of its students. Along with academics, Baylor is a Christian school unapologetic of its faith and openly practices it for all to see and worship!

    Baylor is a University founded on Christian values, and this creates a unique and supportive atmosphere for students. There are so many people who pour into students and traditions such as the Baylor Line, Christmas on Fifth, Pigskin, etc that bring the school together in an amazing way. The campus is beautiful, the football team is great, and Waco is a unique small town with tons of cool things for college students to do.

    Am I wondering how religious is the school? How many religious classes do I need to take? Also do I need to transfer to the Baylor College of Medicine to get my PhD after finishing a Bachelor's at Baylor or can I get it at Baylor's main campus? Thank You

    Baylor is a great sized school with great professors and employees. Don't let Waco worry you, you will learn to love it. Baylor puts God first, academics seconds, and football third

    I am so glad I chose Baylor as my home for the next four years. The atmosphere and people are so great, and (most) of the professors actually want to help you succeed.

    Baylor has a gorgeous campus that is not too big but not too small. All the students and professors are friendly and love to talk to you. There are lots of options for places to stay, things to do, and there is a great variety in people that you will meet.
