Baylor Draws Record Number of Applications despite Scandal

Posted/updated on: March 21, 2017 at 10:30 am

WACO (AP) – Baylor University has drawn a record number of freshmen applications despite a lingering sexual assault scandal that’s led to lawsuits and the departure of top administrators. The Houston Chronicle reports the Baptist university has received about 36,000 applications. Students have until May 1 to make a final admission decision. University officials attribute the increase in applications to a strong and loyal brand in the state and outreach efforts to high school students. The Dallas Morning News previously reported that Baylor saw its second-highest number of early-admission applications in school history. Baylor is contending with lawsuits stemming from its handling of assault claims made against a number of former football players. Students and alumni, meanwhile, have questioned its response to rape allegations on campus in recent years.
