Regular Decision Release: Sunday 3/10/2013

CM RD Sign

Class of 2017

All the applications have been read, all the decisions have been finalized, all the letters have been signed, all the Admit Packets are ready and so, the reading cycle for the Babson Class of 2017 is coming to a close. I have officially survived my very first reading season, having read just over 600 applications from Massachusetts and New Jersey, along with parts of the West Coast too! I think I speak for the rest of the Babson Admission Staff when I say that all of the long nights up late reading applications, followed by the long days of Committee have certainly paid off as we have crafted a class of high quality young men and women.

Congratulations to the newest group of admitted students! As you continue to make your own tough decisions over the next few months, always remember that we are here to answer any questions you may have.

Here are some highlights on the Class of 2017 applicant pool:

  • This year Babson received more than 6,000 applications
  • GOAL: Enroll an entering class of 480 students
  • Overall, Babson has seen 10% increase over last year and a 20% increase in just the past two years. Since 2009, Babson’s applications are up a whopping 47%!
