An important day for Round 1 applicants! (And a shout out for the Round 2 deadline)

This is a big week for all Round 1 applicants – we will be releasing admissions decisions at midnight tomorrow (Eastern Standard Time), Thursday, December 17! The Round 1 pool of candidates was exceptionally qualified this year and the admissions committee spent a remarkable number of hours discussing each applicant and his or her fit for Babson.

So here is what happens next:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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 until August.

For all other applicants – a couple of important reminders:

  • Babson College will be closed for the holidays starting Thursday, December 24. We will return on Monday, January 4.
  • The Graduate Admissions team will be checking the email account periodically over break so if you are working on your application and need technical support – email us.
  • The Round 2 deadline for the Two-Year MBA, One-Year MBA and MSEL is January 4. Here is a reminder of “What you need to know before the deadline”.

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.
