Baylor Housing
« on: March 01, 2005, 02:13:53 PM »
Anyone know of any good apartments in Waco that would be ideal for law students?  I am going to be in Waco this thursday and friday to look for apartments. I start at Baylor law on May 9th and would like to get an idea of some apartment complexes I should go visit.  Thanks for any help anyone can provide.

Stay away from Sterling, the Centre, Arlington Farms, Summer Place, 1911, and pretty much any apartment with words "Baylor" in it. These will be full of Baylor undergrads and can get quite loud during the weeknights. If I were going to Baylor I would probably go back to my old condo. There are only 12 condos in a within a small courtyard, it was very quiet, large, and close to campus. The condos are individually owned and managed and is right across the ghetto HEB (supermarket). There are a bunch of these new "individually owned" condos in this area, but they are a bit pricey. Also nice and expensive are the lofts at LL Sams (off of La Salle) and some downtown lofts (pricey being $500-$700/month for a 1-bdr). I also liked The Island Condos which are directly across the river from the law school. Most of the buildings are owned by Baylor and a few are still owned by individuals (I believe those are all two bedroom+)

I went to the admitted student day, and they handed out a notebook with waco housing information. Youshould be able to get them from Baylor law school once you're there. It contains price, location, ratings of maintenance, noice, and parking. I believe these were rated and provided by current residents. Also if you go to baylor law school site, thre is a link that will coneect you to a page with all the apartments available in waco. http://www.baylor.edu/offcampushousing/

I went to Baylor undergrad and am heading back that way.  I'm working w/ K&S to find something.  I have a roomie and we are dying to live in a loft downtown, but there aren't many left and we can't get up there to look for a couple weeks.  Also if you just want a 1 bedroon there are lots of little random apts in the Castle Heights area.  The nice neighborhood close to downtown that has a lot of old Waco families.  Some of the houses have been converted and make really nice, cute apts.  They are mostly 1/1 or 2/1.  The 2/1's are probably even affordable enough for some to live in by themselves.  I think they run around $650.  Try Harrell Realty's site.  I don't know the exact URL, but google it and it should come up. 
Oh, sweetheart, you don't need law school. Law school is for people who are boring and ugly and serious. And you, button, are none of those things.

No, I attended the one on March 21st.

By the way, I have question for all you guys accepted for the fall.

Did your seat deposit go through yet?

They haven't cashed mine yet.

I called to check if they have received it, and Becky told me that they have received it.

Just curious if others are experiencing this.

I wrote mine on March 11 and it was deposited March 25, but since it was before deposits were due it might have been deposited fast because they didn't have a lot to sort through.

We should start a thread for those of us decided on Baylor.

So you couldn't stay away from Waco? LOL

Yeah, turning down Texas was tough.  It probably wouldn't have happened if I wasn't still so mad at them for effectively killing the graduate program I started there last fall.  Oh well, I don't mind going to school for free and eating Bush's every day!  ;)

Thanks guys, and that's a great idea :)
