I visited and sat in on a few classes at Baylor. Like the other posters said--just get ready, because it's unlike ANY other law school I've ever visited or heard of (and I visited over a dozen schools and researched over 50).
I would HIGHLY recommend that you sit in on some classes before you commit to Baylor over Miami. I was dead set on attending due to a full scholarship, and was only visiting to, in my mind, seal the deal, but after sitting in on 3L practice court and a 1L and 2L class, I knew it wasn't for me. It will be entirely impossible for you to practice anywhere other than Texas (and mostly east Texas at that). If you visit their Career Services office like I did, and take a look at the firms that recruit at Baylor, they're almost all mid-sized Texas-only firms that litigate in Personal Injury, Product Liability, Insurance, and other white-collar crime venues. If you want to do anything other than that, I wouldn't expect any help from Baylor Career Services or On Campus Interviews.
I, like you, enjoy a more "academic" approach to learning, and that's why I chose Washington & Lee over Baylor (also due to 30% tuition at W&L).
But anyway, like I said, MAKE SURE YOU SIT IN ON CLASSES BEFORE COMMITTING, it'll open your eyes to how much Baylor really is a rigorous 3-year Texas Bar Exam prep course (and this is a positive for some people) rather than a traditional law school.
