Have a sufficient GPA, SAT, and ACT score. With Baylor's exorbitant cost, it also helps a lot to have good enough scores to obtain university merit scholarships. Be sure to put time into the essays and answer them truthfully. Sic em.

I was very bright in Highschool, honours and lot'sDec 26 2012Communications
I was very bright in Highschool, honours and lot's of school involvement. I auditioned as a music student (vocal) and got a full ride. Your grades, your essays, and you involvement in highschool are very important. Financial aid at Baylor is NOT awesome, but if you are bright (very bright) you will get paid well, OR if you are an athlete ( expect to stay five years).
Visit the university, meet some of your potential professors, figure out who is on the board of admissions and shmooze a little. If you find people to fight for you, youwill end up with more money,and a much higher chance of getting in. Private universities can do whatever they want it would seem, especially when it comes to admissions. The bottom line for Baylor- If you try hard,3.5 GPA in HS, and are a member of 1 club.. you will get in. Good luck!
