Didn't like the school for a second! First of all the size is so small. There are roughly 1600 undergrads. The professors give work like there is no end to it and our average grade point average is below a 3! Go tell that to a graduate school…

The academics are barely average. The FME is a total joke. Selling little nonsense items is not what you should waste your time doing if you want to become that entrepreneur that Babson claims you will become.

Babson is good for entreprenurship they might be #1 but all their other departments are average or below. I was horribly dissatisfied by the lack of a liberal arts education. I felt as if business was my only goal in life and my education in other areas was severley insufficient. I've come to learn that this hurts big time in the business world.

The social life is terrible. There are a bunch of wealthy internationals who think they are god's given grace and complain that the workload is causing them to suffer. If you want to meet girls forget it. Guys outnumber the girls by a 60-40 ratio and remember there are only 1600 kids.

Boston is only 20 minutes away and if you have a car you can go in and out but if you plan on doing sutff around Babson your also out of luck. There is nothing to do.
