Im curious when most EA get their acceptance as I read past acceptance for EA coming in Oct and even Sept. Everything Baylor says is by Jan 15th. I realize it says “by Jan 15th” but Oct seems really early and one was in Sept. My daughter has applied EA and she also did the accelerate summer program. We debated doing ED, but cant commit without knowing the cost.

Son submitted application yesterday. Hopefully he gets a quick decision. The waiting game is not fun.

my daughter submitted ED early September, has not heard anything yet.


Same here. We submitted for EA in mid September. And just received an email saying that “application is completed” yesterday.

we received an email last week too saying application was complete ( even though it showed in go baylor that it was complete prior to the email)
Tried going into gobaylor acct this morning and it all information on the main page was blank, stated to contact admissions office with a reference number if had questions about application. it was weird

I believe that their portal have some issues yesterday and early this morning. We tried to logon yesterday without any success (got error 503), which is a blank screen as well. We logon again later this morning, it was back to normal.

DS submitted the application on Friday. Their website states he should receive a gobaylor email account info in 24-48 hrs. Will give it some time then. Also, are they rolling - hear rumors that some hear earlier than the typical Dec / Jan / Feb dates.

oh ok, will check this afternoon. I assumed they were having issues of some sort.


It took us about 4 days to receive the portal info and to set it up. They are not rolling admission (not on the webpage). But last year it seems like some will receive the decision earlier than Jan date.
