Hi,

if any applicants from round 1 can kindly inform whether they have been invited for interview, would be appreciated! It will give us all a better sense of the admissions response time to applications. Thank you in advance.

just had my interview with Babson a few days ago with a current student. very conversational. was able to get student's feedback about program throughout the interview as well. Overall one of the more comfortable interviews I've had. Lasted about an hour but we spent a lot of time talking about the program and her experience also. Apparently there is a script of Qs that they follow but the interviewer seemed every adamant about finishing within the one hour time slot and leaving room for Q&A. So my impression is to not spend too much time on any specific question.

Want to post some of the questions I was asked hoping it will help prospective applicants/interviewees as these forums were very valuable in preparing me for interview. Just passing it forward and hope others will do the same. Good luck everyone.

(NOT in any specific order)

- Why Babson
- Why MBA, Why Now
- Give Example of good/bad teamwork
- Short term goals, how does it transition to your LT goals
- Team work setting you like and hate the most
- What would you want to be remembered as
- What are you passionate about
- Any other things you do outside of class
- Tell me of a time you have taken a risk
- Tell me of a time that you have acted entrepreneurally
- If a team member was not contributing what would you do
- What would you say are your three strengths/three things you would like to improve
- Which other schools have you applied to
- Walk me through your resume.
- Babson is about teamwork, so please tell me about the best and worst team experiences you had.
- A time you worked in a team, what did you learn about yourself?
-Types of people who you can't get along with. (was surprised to be asked this question, not sure if I answered well)

Here are my questions to add to the above:

They also asked me about a time I took a risk. But here are additional ones:

What would you do outside the classroom if you came to Babson?
Tell me what you do outside the classroom now? Your hobbies and how they relate to what you do professionally...

My interview went strictly by that script (4 pages - 3 questions on each page with room to take notes underneath) and in some answers the interviewer said "Oh, I guess you answered this one, so let's move to the next one." The interview lasted 45 minutes counting the 2 questions I had in the end.

Live Essay Writing Workshop, presented by Admissionado


Sigh. The MBA Application essays. Who thought it was a good idea to ask people to write 2000 words before they even get INTO school? Turns out, it doesn’t matter, because someone did… and now you have to come up with the most compelling and memorable essays about leadership that you can. And then do it again for every school you apply to.

It’s not easy, but this upcoming event should help. Submit your MBA Application essay to have an opportunity to have it reviewed for free by the team at Admissionado. Three essays will be selected, and if you are one of the lucky ones, you will have the opportunity to go through your essay with Phillip Herring (admissions expert and CBS MBA) in a live session. You will need to be OK with sharing your essay with attendees (don’t worry – we’ll keep your name/private info out of it), and available and online at the time of the event to chat it up with Phillip. Even if you aren’t selected, listen in, because there will still be plenty of essay advice to go around.

Submit your essay to lauren@admissionado.com by Monday, December 3. You will find out if you are selected by Wednesday, December 5. Then join the live event on Thursday, December 6 at 6pm PST. Register Now [FREE!]

well this is all speculation but previous year. the notifications went out beginning on the 13th, and I read somewhere that last year was also the 15th for the deadline notification. So it is not entirely out of the realm to say we may get notice earlier. Secondly, the 15th is a saturday so I think it may make sense for them to tell us beforehand. Just sharing my thoughts, things could change from year to year. Best of luck yal'

Any reason why you were expecting decisions by the 10th? Just curious.

@pilolo.. I was told by my interviewer that adcom would meet in 1st week of december and decisions would be released couple of days after that.. so the math suggested a tentative date of 10th..

Its weird.. I got a mail from Babson Student Financial Services indicating that I have got an admit.. But strangely no mail about the actual admit yet!.... So with a grain of salt, I will take that I got in.. No information on any scholarships yet though..

I got the same email from student financial services - hoping it's not a fluke! Nothing from Admissions though.
