Interviews

First-Year Students

Virtual interviews for students interested in applying to Babson for Fall 2021 are available beginning April 1, 2020. Please note, interviews are only open to current high school seniors with a high school graduation year of 2021 – no exceptions will be made. Interviews must be scheduled at least 48 hours in advance. Please use the interview calendar to schedule your interview.

Virtual interviews will be conducted on WebEx, a secure online meeting platform. Students will receive a WebEx link through an invitation from a Babson College representative approximately 24 hours before their scheduled interview.

Virtual interviews are strongly recommended for prospective transfer students. Interviews for students interested in transferring​ to Babson for ​Spring 2021 will be available through November 1, 2020. Interviews must be scheduled at least 48 hours in advance.

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 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.

Alumni Interviews

We are pleased to offer first-year applicants the opportunity to interview with Babson alumni. Students may request an interview through their Babson Applicant Portal once their application has been submitted. This year, alumni interviews will be conducted either by phone or through virtual platforms like Skype, Google Hangouts, Webex, and Zoom.

Students applying to Babson may only interview once per admission cycle. Therefore, applicants who interview with the Office of Undergraduate Admission are not eligible for an alumni interview.

Babson's alumni network is extensive, and every effort will be made to accommodate as many students as possible. Nonetheless, there may be instances where we are not able to fulfill alumni interview requests.

Alumni interviews are available beginning in October for Early Decision I and Early Action candidates and in early January for Early Decision II and Regular Decision candidates.
