A big day for Round 1 applicants!

Today is a very important day for all Round 1 applicants – we will be releasing admissions decisions at midnight! The Round 1 pool of candidates was large and exceptionally strong this year and the admissions committee spent a tremendous number of hours discussing the candidates and their fit for Babson.

So here is what happens next:

  • You will receive an email to check your Babson Bridge where your decision letter will be posted. You will also be able to see what merit scholarship you may have received.
  • All admitted candidates will be invited to join us for a special Welcome Day in January. We hope you will be able to join us.
  • If you find that you have been wait listed, don’t panic and follow the instructions and suggestions for waitlisted candidates on the Bridge – we will continue to work with you.
  • Finally, if you did not receive a positive outcome, we will be happy to connect with you and offer some feedback – but please note that we will not be able to do this earlier than August.

For all other applicants – a couple of important reminders:

  • Babson College will be closed for the holidays starting Wednesday, December 24. We will return on Monday, January 5.
  • The Round 2 deadline for the Two-Year MBA, One-Year MBA and MSM is January 5. Here is a reminder about What the expect after you hit “Submit”.

On behalf of the entire Graduate Admissions team, I wish you happy holidays and a wonderful start of the New Year!


We all have our own goals. Live yours.
