We were misinformed by the Baylor recruiter when applying to colleges. Baylor is not worth the money you pay a year. Even with scholarships. The Academic Advisors are inaccessible, misguide you and you are only allowed one visit with them per semester. The prestigious Biology department is not so. There was a petition in October 2019 with approx. 60 students on four of the Professors on their teaching. The classroom sizes are not small and the Professors do not care including the Religion Professor. Registering each semester is a nightmare. Classes are gone quickly and you are waitlisted only to find out you are dropped and don?t end up with 12 hours causing you to lose your scholarship money. Dr. Livingstone will dismiss your e-mails if you have an escalated issue that needs addressing. It has been a disappointing experience.

I think you must try very hard at this campus, and study a lot, but if you do, your time at Baylor will be a piece of cake.

Baylor?s student body is very accepting and there is people of all types. The academics are tough but that is what gets you an exceptional education. I have only had one professor that I disliked so far because of his grading policy. There are definitely parties if that?s what you?re looking for, but if you aren?t the party type, the party scene can be unnoticeable.
