What do you know about the school, the theatre department, the area?

It is a Baptist-affiliated school (The Baptist General Convention of Texas) that has a strong reputation for academics in certain fields. A good friend of mine in a professor in the Classics department there.

Oh, Waco was the home of the Branch Davidians, but I don't think you have to worry about that now.

What do you love or hate about the above?

As an alumnus of another Texas Baptist school, I didn't care for the superior attitude of many Baylor students toward their sister schools. I'm certain I received a better education in my degree program than I would have at Baylor.

Anybody live close by?

I'm about 90 minutes away.

First thing to keep in mind: It's Texas. They don't require a passport, but you will be living in a foreign country.

Do they distribute guns at the border?

You don't get your handguns until you obtain a Texas Driver's License. :)

Well, I do. Like Will, I'm also in the DFW area to the north.

My Dad went to Baylor for a time way back in the day (what day, I don't really know), and another teacher that I work with graduated from there recently. She said that the party atmosphere is alive and well, which also means that, being a Baptist school, the hypocrisy is too. But that may not affect a family guy like you.

I don't know if my post is past any deadlines you may have, but what's going on? (PM me if you like.)
