See You at Preview Day!

At this point in the admission cycle, we are starting to wrap up our campus events for the academic year.  One of our last major events of the spring will be our final Preview Day on Saturday, April 26th.  We typically hold these events in both the fall and spring to provide an opportunity for…

Tommaso’s 7-Day: Babson168

I suppose I should start today’s entry with an apology for the lack of posts the last couple weeks (especially embarrassing considering I’m usually the one nagging our other bloggers to post new content). As you may have heard, this past Friday was our admitted student day, Babson168. Over 350 admitted students descended on campus…

Driven to Distraction

Happy Friday! Has anyone else had trouble concentrating today? Judging from my Twitter, Facebook and Instagram, the interwebs  are exploding with anticipation over the final push to release decisions at schools across the country.  While intellectually we know that we should all focus on work and school, the knowledge that something may be waiting in…

Spring Break At Babson and Beyond

Campus is pretty quiet this week since most of our students are off on a well-deserved spring break.  Over the last few weeks, the Babson student body has been caught up in dreaded midterm season, consisting of many late nights in the library, last-minute studying, and final practice for group presentations.  Through all of the…

Tommaso’s 7-Day

Last week was another busy one on campus, as students powered through the last of their midterms and assignments before packing their bags and heading off for Spring Break this week (stay tuned for more on Spring Break here on the blog this week). Athletes were in action, FME businesses were busy making sales and…

2018!

It’s been nearly a week since decisions have gone out and the excitement  over the admitted Class of 2018 being selected is still in full force (I think that may have contributed to having lost for the past 3 days-the staff has never seen me so quiet-it’s driving me crazy). Since Sunday we have started…

A Day In the Life: Babson Senior

My final spring semester signifies the slowing of the wheels and transition to what it is to come right after; my last three months of college until the “real life” begins. Overall, my last semester has been a time for me to slow down, reminisce with friends and take the time to enjoy things I…

Tommaso’s 7-Day: Decision Edition

One of the things I love about Babson is how connected our students and community are on social media. Yesterday marked what is personally one of my favorite days of the year – the release of admission decisions for Regular Decision applicants. With decisions set to go live online at 3:00pm yesterday, the dining table…

Decision Day

Here we go.  This Sunday at 3:00 EST, Babson College will release Regular Decisions online (accessible through the My Babson portal, so be sure your username and password is ready). Decision Day is always a big deal for us here in the Admission Office-a combination of exciting, rewarding, and more than a little nerve wracking…

Essay Reflections

As our application review process winds down, our office has been reflecting on the students we’ve met and learned about along the way. While your high school transcript, testing, recommendations, and extracurricular involvement all play big roles in our decision-making process, for many of us, the essay is the highlight – myself included!  This is…
