Praying that you get to visit your mother soon!
My OOS Son was admitted for Fall 2021! We are very excited!
Late to the thread but wanted to share that they actually told us they were going to use ACT/SAT scores for Regent’s Scholarship purposes back in Sept/Oct—then, at the last moment, decided they would not use them. For us, this felt so dishonest. my d had already taken once and got 1410. Pepp told us she needed to get above 1420 and she would be a lock for Regents. She re-took, got a 1460, they said she was a lock—then went on to deny her Regents because they decided not to take into account standardized tests. Huge deception at the expense of my daughter and her mental health. Disappointing to say the least. Then later denied her a Church of Christ scholarship even though we are COC. Stats are 4.2, 1460, good essays, EC’s, service hours, varsity swim, NHS, etc Baylor offered Honors College and more money. We live in OK.
I completely understand your frustration and agree that it was deceptive and handled terribly. My daughter with a 35 ACT and UW 4.0 was told she would definitely receive the Regents Scholarship. But…Congratulations to your daughter on her Baylor scholarship admission to the Honors College!!! Have you visited Baylor? We absolutely fell in love with Baylor when we visited in September, and it quickly became my daughter’s first choice. Like your daughter, my daughter received a generous Baylor scholarship and admission to the Honors College. She plans to live in the Honors Residential College and participate in the University Scholars program. After our visit, she would have chosen Baylor even if Pepp had given her the Regents Scholarship. All the very best to your daughter!
Q? Does anyone have info about the theatre department? I am wondering if it is possible to participate/audition for the musicals if it is not your major? Thanks for any info you may have!

Main stage performances? Dk if other majors can audition.
Dorms are guaranteed for first two years. However, many students go abroad their second year. Lottery system for upperclassman dorms.
