Anyone have a group chat started. I was admitted last week.
Paragraph disappeared on app status page. Anyone know how long it takes until you get a decision rendered?
Status date disappeared and moved to the top of law hub but no decision yet 2/27
@SubParApplicant: Same here, 2/27
Has anyone here had any luck with scholarship negotiations?
anyone have any luck getting off of the WL?
@ValleyH: was on waitlist in October (but they extended admission for spring in the place of Fall). Had an alumni interview in january to get off the waitlist. Got off of the WL a few weeks later
@Jack77: they have a scholarship reconsideration form on their website that you can do. I had luck in my reconsideration for scholarship but mine wasn't so much of a negotiation but more of a plea lol. I want to go there and i just want to make sure i can afford it
But tbh. Your scholarship is great by there standards. Idk how much more you could request
my status checker moved to the top
I'm really worried about the conditionality of the scholarship.
looking at these recent decisions I'm kinda shocked I got waitlisted for fall. Looks like tons of people even below my stats made it and I've had success at other schools so I don't think it's my apps
@VersedImperfectMouse: i think it might be because they've let in a lot of people already that they are just being more cautious and WLing until deposits
great scholarship offer though!
Did anyone get scholarship money for the summer term?
Baylor handing out fat unsolicited scholarship increases today
Yeah honestly a pretty nice scholarship increase too haha I respect it - still has that conditional though
is there an admitted students group for Baylor by chance?
at the very least, does anybody think they're going to be attending Baylor? lmao
@BronzeSample: I'm highly considering it. Its the closest campus to family and the campus itself is just beautiful
@NothingButGreen: campus is stunning! I went to undergrad at Baylor and loved it
How long does it take to get the mail after your portal says “a decision has been rendered”?
My first notice was like 3 days and my second decision came after about 6 days
I'd recommend calling if you haven't already! it can take awhile to get your letter
Does anyone know if spring and summer start applicants get the same scholarship packages as typical fall start applicants?
Anybody got any housing recs?
hey bronze sample yes there is an admit. stud. gc
Choosing between Baylor and full ride at tech if anyone has any advice
@MaddyMay22: Tech has pretty good outcomes but is mostly connected in West Texas and DFW I think. You' be taking on quite the bit of debt from Baylor, so you just decide if that debt is worth the pros vs cons of both schools
