Was very fortunate and got a significant scholarship. Will be attending the event on the 29th to experience Babson firsthand.

Hi guys !

Congratulations to everyone who received admits :)

Regarding fin aid, I still see that part of application under review. Those who got aid, did you
submit any other application , or did you mention it in the interviews? or have they just automatically sent the package...


The same for me, I think we have to wait for the official package to see if we get anything :shock: :shock:

Hi Guys,

I was also admitted to Babson :-D no info on the scholarship yet will have an update only on 22nd. Although I have admits from Rotman and Carlson I plan to attend Babson so created an unofficial Facebook group for the Babson MBA class of 2014(Babson College MBA Class of 2014).

Do let me know if you have any problems in joining the group.

Regards,
Chethan

Great work Chethan! I was going to start a separate thread for admitted students, but FB works just as good I guess.
I have been trying to pay the deposit, but the payment server seems to be under maintenance. Are you guys planning on staying on-campus? Any idea of the cost of housing and what all it includes?

Hmmm... I guess Adcoms work in, what seems to us as, mysterious ways!
You don't need to apply for aid, all applications are considered for scholarship. I don't think you can negotiate a scholarship from Babson, even though I do know of someone who did so with another university.
As for BU, though the choice is totally yours but as I see it BU and Babson have very different outlooks, and I chose Babson purely based on fit! Obviously the aid made the decision much easier. I'd suggest go for the school who's culture, ideology and uniqueness is in line with your profile and goals. Whether that's Babson or BU, let the aid be secondary. Again, thats just my point of view :)

I would try to help you as much as I can.

I got admitted, just waiting for my packet to arrive! When I logged onto the portal, it noted my scholarship and that I have a FAFSA loan for the max. Babson's loan directions are not the best, so I'd call the Financial Aid Office if you have any questions. I submitted my FAFSA info, and the website also says to go through the College Board's site (which I thought was just for undergrad), but when I submitted all of my stuff to IDOC/College Board, I received a letter saying that I was not recognized in the system. Once I accept Babson, I'm going to talk to the Financial Aid Office to figure out what I need to do...
