Sorry about rejection for the fall, I got the same thing. Are you going to reactivate? And do you mind sharing your numbers?

just checked my status..it says a decision has been made on my file and that a letter has been mailed. however, my thing changed and it added spring 2011 on it and that status says that it has been completed. so does that mean i was rejected for the fall and they're considering me for the spring?

when i applied, i checked the spring 2011 box..so do they even bother sending a reject letter for fall?

My status just changed as well.

When I met with them, they told me they would send a response for fall, and then another for spring.

Good luck!

I applied in early December and I have not heard anything from then since then.

That seems more than just a little ridiculous and disrespectful

Have you emailed them or anything? I sent an email last week and my letter was sent yesterday.

+1 on this question.

I've been told by a number of people that Waco is a bit of an apartment wasteland, and you should avoid the undergrad apartment complexes at all costs (mostly just because you will have trouble with noise, etc).

I've had people tell me that renting a house is a good option in Waco, though that's obviously a more involved process than running down to the local University Terrace and renting an apartment.

I've personally been looking into Behrens Lofts, which seem to be more geared toward young professionals than college students. A bit more expensive, but right in the heart of Waco and not far from Baylor. Seem to be the best option in the apartment/condo/loft rental market that I've found.

The Residence at Central Texas Marketplace has been recommended to me, but I'm not sure on that. Would love to get more opinions.

Just FYI, I think you should know the area pretty well before you rent a house. I had a buddy who went there for undergrad, and they rented a house their senior year. It was burglarized twice in a year.

Of course, this is only anecdotal, but according to him, it is a real concern.

Visited last week and top two apartment picks are The Residence at Central Texas Marketplace and The Retreat at Central Texas Marketplace. Very similar, nice shopping center within walking distance of the Retreat and less than a mile from the Residence, golf course across street, only about 5 minutes from campus. Also, the property value in the area must be high because the high school football field across the street was huge. Loved the Residence, but signed on with the Retreat because they are 6 years newer and had more units available. The cost varies at the Retreat depending on how long you lease and what floor you want to be on. At the residence, one bedrooms are $825 and two bedrooms are $925. Hope this helps!

Mind sharing your stats and when you reactivated?

I went to undergrad at Baylor and there is plenty of housing, and really in apartment complexes noise is normally not an issue.

Behrens is nice, I had a few friends who lived there.

If you want cheap housing that is fairly close to campus, though a bit out of the way from the law school (a mile or so), University Housing is simple, cheap, and they don't have bugs. And you will appreciate that in October when the crickets infest Waco. Big 12 is reasonable and has nice apartments. There are lots of lofts and converted warehouses that give you a lot of space in Waco that aren't badly priced. Obviously a roommate makes things much cheaper but even if you are on a budget and want to live alone, it is completely doable.

I wouldn't recommend anything directly on the other side of I-35W from Baylor, though once you get past the train tracks into downtown Waco its fine, even nice. I wouldn't go south of 13th street unless you like noise and beggars showing up at your door, yeah that will happen. There is a whole slew of apartment complexes on University Parks Drive east of LaSalle, though those are mostly Undergrad. Some are pretty nice though.

I am about to be a 3L at Baylor (started in Fall '08). If anyone has any questions feel free to PM me or post them in this thread. Just as an aside, the people being diverted from the Fall class to the Spring/Summer classes should consider this a blessing in disguise.

I sent this in a PM to someone so I'm just going to paste it here:

All you are doing by entering the fall class is making it harder on yourself in terms of getting good grades/rank/law review/etc. The school has recently changed the way they rank classes so that spring and summer starters are ranked separate and apart from the fall classes. So if you enter in the spring, you are ranked against other spring starters and if you start in the fall you are only ranked against other fall starters for 2L OCI. This is a HUGE advantage. For example, after 3 quarters of work (the first year) the law review cutoff GPA was a 3.59 for fall starters. It was a 3.38 for the spring starting classes. Invitations to the law review happen after your 3rd quarter and, just like the rankings, are determined only one group at a time so you're not competing against fall starters with higher numbers.

Well, it looks like only a few of the spring “reactivator” have received their decisions. I spoke with Baylor last week and was told that they would have the remaining decisions complete by Aug. 15th. I am slated to start at a tier 4 school on the 23rd with an orientation on the 18th. If they wait until the 15th, that really doesn’t give much time to withdraw from the other school and allow them to pull someone else in from their WL. Is there anyone else out there in similar shoes?
