Happy Friday! What’s everyone doing this weekend?  Binge watching Homeland? Catching up on sleep? Working on some early applications? I just looked at my calendar and realized that for all of you early applicants out there, this is the last full weekend to work on your applications before next Saturday’s November 1 deadline.

Your Words, Your Life – Writing the College Essay

It’s that time of year again – back on the road visiting with students from all across the country and all around the globe. While I’m only in my second week of travel (and don’t actually make it back to campus for almost a full month!), I’m already finding that students are eager to talk…

It’s no secret that admission counselors are deep into application reading at this point. Just like everything else, everyone has their own way to get things done. Most people in our office play music in the background while they read, so I figured I would give everyone a sampling of what our staff listens to…

Regular Decision Deadline Extended

As you may have heard, much of the United States has been dealing with some wild weather recently. I realize that because of this, many prospective students may have missed Babson’s January 3rd application deadline. For this reason, we’re extending our application deadline until January 15, 2014 in order to give you more time to…

All is Merry and Bright

Not that I’m counting or anything, but in just a few hours Babson College will close for the holidays. Those of us in the admission office are collectively looking forward to seeing our families, catching up on sleep, eating good food (and lots of it), and possibly even tackling a new tv show (I am…
