Hey I am a current Baylor Law Student, and I just started my 4th Quarter. I was sad to read that someone told you that most students lose their scholarship...because that is not true. I am personally on a scholarship and do not expect to lose it. What is true is that SOME students lose there scholarship, and generally speaking those are the only students who will be willing to talk about their scholarship. Baylor does NOT give scholarships to everyone! I PROMISE YOU! The majority of students in my class are not on scholarships, and of the ones who are I do not know of any who are losing them this quarter (although there may be one). Baylor is a hard school, and there is no way around that, but the administration realizes that. In fact the GPA to keep your scholarship has been lowered to 2.6 because of the concern that students expressed. Furthermore, Baylor will automatically give you a scholarship for full or half tuition if your GPA is ABOVE a certain point after a year.
The way Baylor stays competitive is by pushing their students harder than they think they can be pushed. Believe it or not this attracts a certain caliber of student. The environment in the law school is EXTREMELY friendly, not cut-throat. The recent announcement that we are the "nations most competitive law school" came as quite a surprise to everyone. Truly the students are not out to beat each other, rather we just want to make it through together.
thanks for the very helpful info!
