Hi All,
I didn't see one, so I thought I'd start a thread for those of us applying to the BCM PA program this year. Please feel free to ask questions below or just say hi :)

Submitted my application on Monday, hoping to be verified by early next week! I was just waiting on my final transcript to arrive and it was received my CASPA today. Perfect timing! I have also submitted my supplemental application.

 

Good luck everyone!

I know Baylor has their average/recommended GPA scores on their website. Have you checked those out?

Your other stuff like GPA and HCE are awesome! You are for sure competitive, however it does say this on their website-"Applicants must have a minimum score of 153 on the verbal, 144 on the quantitative, and 3.5 on the analytical writing components of the GRE General Test to be competitive with others in the overall applicant pool"

I think it would be worth it to try again, just so that's not what is holding you down!

Does anyone know if Baylor has rolling admissions? I read in last year's thread that it was non-rolling, and I emailed them a while back but haven't heard back from them.

You should retake the GRE. They wont even look at your application if you do not have the minimum requirements.

Hey does anyone what the deal is with Baylor's pre reqs? Do they need to be completed by the Fall or Spring semester? Is there anyone we can contact about pre req questions? I couldn't find an email or number for an advisor on their website.

Hey would anyone tell me weather Baylor will accept an application if CASPA hasn't verified it by Sept 1st? I have read in other programs' websites that they will accept CASPA applications as long as they are submitted by the deadline and verified by another specific date but wasn't able to find that on Baylor's site. Thanks!

Per the PAEA Website, it shows that the application has to be submitted by Sept 1st. Not verified.

They won't offer interviews until December. They conduct them in January and go over all applications before offering interviews.

So based on previous years, it can range from December 12 and beyond. Someone I spoke with last year said they found out on December 24th (Merry Christmas?!). Given that they received 1334 applications last year and are expecting more this year, I would say start looking around December 20th range.
