They were average 16-17. But my GPA Was high 3.8 overall and 3.9 science.
Plus I was in dental school back in my country and I did very good in the interview; got a scholarship from Baylor too.

I'm glad that all of you have finally received acceptance to Baylor. Baylor is my number one choice and I am applying this year for Class of 2016'. Hope I get in! On a side note...

I have also applied to the SPEP-Collegiate program that Baylor offers every summer. Has anyone on this thread ever attended the SPEP program.. if so, could you please share your experiences (positive or negative)..
Did the program prepare you for the DAT?

How was the phone interview, what questions were asked?

What courses did you take in the SPEP?

How many of your mates in the program were accepted into Dental school after the program.

Any experiences are welcome, a quick overview of the program would also be appreciated!

Thanks in Advance!

Considering that your an out of state resident.. Im not sure if your chances of getting into the program decreases...but I spoke with Jamie and she informed me that they accept students all over the nation for the SPEP program.. but when applying to the dental school.. they are more selective in which out of staters they select.

You should call Mrs. Jamie V. and find out whether or not she is done scheduling interviews. Best of Luck.

Yes. I was put on the alternate list Feb 22. They told me in the interview not to be disappointed because I wouldnt be in the first round of acceptances. At the time of the interview I had only been back in school for one year and half the Fall semester. And being a non-traditional student, I didnt even have all the pre-reqs by Dec 1st (I was in Biochem I that Fall). The were very honest with me and told me they wanted to see more of my grades. I had actually given up and thought it wouldnt happen this round.

This was posted on the facebook page but just in case if any of yall haven't joined yet....

one of our members posted about an in town housing program they have at certain apartment locations and I called marquis at texas street and it's a pretty sweet deal. They have a 2 bedroom/2 bathroom for 1055 a month on a 12 month lease if anyone is actually looking for a roommate. to me that's a good deal considering most of the price ranges for downtown apartments are anywhere from 1200+. It's also a nice location not too far away from Baylor as well (like a one minute drive)
