Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Any thoughts on Baylor?

We have a VERY low curve.

50% is about 2.7
Top 10% is above a 3.45 or so.

No one has ever graduated with a natural 4.0

Bottom 10% is below a 2.2

I'll give you a little more.

The comments in the OP regarding "Marine Corps of Law Schools" is probably well deserved. Baylor requires things that as far as I know, no other school does. We have to stand when cold called, no notes, no briefs, no computer to look at. Some profs require the cold called to go in front of class, explain the facts and advocate a certain side or position in a case.

As far as competitive, sure its subjective but this is not HYS. Kids here, if they want a $100K+/year have to be top 15-22% at least. At the top schools, you can get those jobs at a greatly differing range of GPA levels. Another reason Baylor is so hard is Practice Court, which is no joke, if you want to be a trial lawyer in Texas there is no better place because you have the equivalent of a couple of full trials in school here, and its not easy.

The attrition here is also quite high due to the reasons above, our entering class of 67, Fall 2004. We now have 59 and we will be getting grades back in 3 weeks or so from our first set of finals (quarter system).

Ok a couple of things....

I'm a 2Q at Baylor and let me tell you the guy above talking about "breaking" that guy above is total BS. Almost everyone here is on a large scholarship and no one "breaks" anyone.

That being said its very competitive, you have to stand up when cold-called the professors are kind of hard asses and the school is very small so you know everyone.

If you want to know anything specific email me at I'll be more than happy to tell ya anything ya want. Baylor's a great program but its /very/ work-intensive.

to answer your question: 6 points and 8 points.

how can something like this NOT come up at bar time, also EVERY application i filled out asked if i had ever attended a law school before. since you are required to keep the school you will attend about changes to the application sounds like she skimped. again im kinda thinking this is why the bar interviews are pains sometimes.

I put 'other' as my ethnicity specific Slavic. I figure Slavs are HEAVILY underrepresented in todays American education system.

XOXOHTH board is more coherent than this-- and its not coherent at all.

Ahh as far as I know, no. They just split Czechoslovakia into Czech Repub. and Slovakia. I hope they don't change it again hard enough to get people to say Czech Republic. Err maybe you're thinking of Bohemian/Moravian which are like subgroups.

I'm quite happy being Czech.

I thought they are trying to change the name from Czech Republic to something else

Incoming 1Ls / Re: is the lsat a load of crap or what?

Just so you know I got a 164 with self-study. Not the greatest but good enough to get me to SMU/Baylor/etc. I only used 10 real LSATs and lots of studying time in the library.

It can be done just takes work. (the first practice test score was a 151 so i DID do some improving)

EDIT: smujd2007 i think i replied to your thread on xoxo earlier too, small world of law student message boards
