either way, i think i would have ended up at the same place

It isnt unusual for Baylor to have the highest passage rate.  They have a very small class and all they do is review for the bar for 3 years- i hope they can pass it after that

You know, every school in Texas has the same set of required courses for those who plan to practice in Texas. I don't think it's fair to say one school "teaches to the bar" more than any other.

yeah except baylor has a lot more required courses than UT and they DO teach to the bar more than UT does; don't take my word for it, call and ask them, they don't try to hide this, in fact- it seemed like a selling point for them

unless you have an offer that is currently valid from a school they feel like they compete with for students you probably won't get anywhere
