Members of Baylor’s Class of 2011 began their college careers today. The class brings in a school-record average SAT score (1218), and 40% of the freshmen graduated in their high school’s top 10%.
Those sorts of accolades helped Baylor rise six spots in the annual U.S. News & World Report rankings to 75th, its highest overall ranking ever. BU finished third in the Big 12 and fifth in the state of Texas in this year’s rankings.
Sic ’em, freshman class!
