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....

    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.

    Baylor is a beautiful campus to attend and earn an undergraduate degree. With new buildings being under construction as well as Big 12 Champion streak, Baylor is a new contender for a top private university in Texas for Medical, Business, and Computer Science focuses/majors. Not to mention, great social and campus involvement.

    Baylor University is exactly as it it promoted by its fellow alumni. It is a 4 year private Baptist University that provides an amazing and rigorous academic program, which prepares its students for life after college. It includes the Christian aspect perfectly thus aiding its goal of shaping students into well-rounded ethical persons.
