These are some of the questions I have about college.
Most of these questions are about Baylor.

1. Does what major you choose change what kind of SAT score you need to get accepted?

2. What is a good safe score to have to get accepted into Baylor?

3. How many hours of volunteer work is a good amount?

Help please!
I need to start with college apps too any tips on that?

    1. I think Baylor's admissions are "holistic," so they take everything into account when making a decision. There is no "cut-off" score to get admitted. However, certain programs might require higher scores or supplemental scores/materials (ie: School of Music, Honors programs). As far as I know, you can switch very easily to any major within a given school.

    2. See above, although a school like Baylor is likely to work off a balance: Higher test scores allows for lower GPA, and vice versa.

    3. ECs won't be judged just on hours, but also on what you actually did with those hours. Spend your time wisely.

    Best advice I can give with apps: start soon. It'll make the roadbumps a lot smoother.
