Baylor Class of 2016 (2012-2013 cycle)

Postby havanese11 » Thu Oct 25, 2012 2:56 pm

Surprised to receive an acceptance letter in the mail today! Accepted for Fall 2013 entering class. Also received a $72,000 scholarship as long as i maintain 2.75 gpa. Already have another acceptance so I now have a tough decision to make.
GPA: 3.6
LSAT: 162

163, 3.81 with $108,000 over 3 years. A little worried about the 2.75 GPA stipulation though. Does anyone know the 1L median GPA at Baylor? I've heard it's extremely low. The letter mention top 75% or so for 2L students and top 85% for 3L students. The lack of info on first year GPA makes me a bit cautious.

I got the same scholarship offer. From the looks of it, I don't think it will be too bad.
All the letter is saying is you have to maintain a 2.75 which means you need to stay in the top 75% of your class (that's what it comes out to roughly with curves). Here is a link to Baylors 2012 class ranks w/ GPA.

My letter was mailed out today but I won't get to see it for a week - I used my parent's address with the LSAC since I'll be living with them for a few months in the Spring. I have a 163 and 3.57 but am not a URM. My guess is that I'll get in with a half-ride at most. Baylor really isn't a good fit for me but I'm a Texan who likes generous scholarships, so I applied.

Might want to withdraw those other apps ASAP before Dook finds out.

I thought you couldn't start any new apps? I was going to withdraw the apps when the schools respond that way when duke does scholarship I can show what other offers I had (even though it doesn't matter with Ed)

If I am wrong please let me know, don't want to piss off the Duke people.

I had just thought with Ed you couldn't start any new apps, I didn't think there was any harm letting the apps that were already complete go through.

Edit:just found my own answer will have em all withdraw ASAP!

I just got a short "Financial Aid Award Notification" from Baylor today, but have not even received an acceptance letter yet. The scholarship letter only asks that I accept or decline, then they list award totals for Fall 2012, Winter 2012, and Spring 2013. Kind of odd because I applied for entry in Spring 2013. Other than that, no stipulations as to if this would continue into later terms or GPA requirements. I am kind of puzzled by this, and thinking that maybe the initial acceptance packet, which hasn't arrived yet, will contain more information. Any ideas or similar experiences?

So, they mailed my decision on the 13th but my parents claim they haven't gotten anything yet.

I'm 98% sure that I'm accepted. I went to their website and clicked the "I forgot my ID" button and I have a Baylor ID Number in their system. I can't imagine why I would unless I had been accepted as ID numbers are often included in acceptance letters.

Excited for Tuesday when I can go home for a few days and hopefully get my packet and learn more!

Now, if only I'd hear back from a school that I was more interested in. Baylor is a poor fit for me....

(PS: What are people considering a full-ride? About 15k a quarter?)

I have almost identical numbers and got a scholarship letter too, but nothing else. Did you get a packet of some sort?

My profile says they mailed the decision letter on the 13th, and I'm in Dallas. I hope it shows up tomorrow. The wait is killing me.

I still haven't gotten my decision letter and I'm in Houston. It was mailed the 13th. I'm really hoping that my acceptance packet and/or my scholarship offer is waiting for me when I get home tomorrow! I'm 98% sure that I got in - even told some people - because I have an ID number in the Baylor system but I'd love to see it in writing!

I checked the mail, and I didn't receive my letter today. (Sigh)
However, I did check the website for a Baylor ID, and I found one. I'm hoping that's a good sign.

Congrats Che! That's outstanding!
Unfortunately, receiving the scholarship offer before the acceptance letter seems to be a trend.

Congrats on finally getting your letter! I'm hoping to get mine tomorrow. I'm headed back to college to finish my last semester soon - so I'll have to wait until mid-December to see it (or have my parents forward it to my college address) unless it comes tomorrow! Right now, I'm really strongly leaning towards Texas Tech. Still, it's super-exciting to hear back from any school! Think positive thoughts for my mailbox tomorrow!

Congrats to all those who have have been accepted. I got my letter today as well, in with a full ride. 166/3.78, Non-URM, Active Duty Marine Officer. Nice to have at least one sure bet for this cycle.
