Congrats on your admit! I would recommend you review a few of the existing discussions about Babson:
https://gmatclub.com/forum/babson-mba-v ... 42469.html

It is a fallen angel of a program. Unless you are set on entrepreneurship, I would suggest 2018 probably but it depends on which round you applied in - if it was R1 and you tried a bunch of programs and got nowhere, then maybe go but if it was R3, then maybe try again. Also, if you can't wait in your current job and you have to escape a particular situation then go, but if you can improve your career a bit more in the next 3-6 months and improve your application then maybe wait.... there are quite a few things involved and you provided so little info that it is not really possible to help you.

Thanks! Applied in rounds 2-3 to 5 places. Got interviewed in all but not admitted. I'm not the entrepreneurial type but wouldn't mind developing the acumen. There would be nothing new in my application but I can improve upon my gmat score and also hire a better consultant for the essays. I AM trying to escape a situation but not towards a worse situation. And I want to be able to get a job to repay the debt that I'll be in after the MBA.

I do not think that Babson will lead you to your goals
I would advise to postponed your application till 2018 and work on your application with admission consultant to avoid any rejection as happened in last season. Also, there is an opportunity to score more in your in GMAT and make your profile attractive to adcoms.

Good luck
