Interviews at Babson

Interviews are an excellent opportunity to have a one-on-one conversation with an admission counselor or student admission intern so that we can get to know you in person prior to beginning the application review process.

If you choose to interview with us you should be prepared to talk about yourself and your interest in Babson, and bring any questions you would like to discuss. A summary of our conversation with you will become part of your admission file and can be influential in the decision we make.

There is no suggested dress code for the interview, but you should remember that this may be your first and only one-on-one meeting with a member of our admission staff.

While we enjoy getting to know our applicants during the interview process, we realize that not everyone is able to schedule an interview; for this reason, students who choose not to schedule an interview will not be penalized in our admission process. As an alternative to on-campus or alumni interviews, applicants from China have the option to schedule an interview through InitialView.com.

We respectfully request that your interview be scheduled prior to your arrival on campus to ensure that we have someone available to meet with you. Interviews can be scheduled by calling the Office of Undergraduate Admission toll-free (within the U.S.) at 800-488-3696 or at 781-239-5522.
