What do you think was the biggest change?
Can you please explain?
Forget about stereotypes of 'Frats' there will be no Greek life next year. Three out of Four frats have lost housing and morale is very low. The school is against Greeks and there is panic amongst the student body. Please comment if someone thinks this is false.
There are only three frats at Babson.
Was that supposed to be a reply to Babsonian's comment?
No, it's just a name that they have given to their application.
What is the significance of being named a scholar's choice applicant?
No real significance, except that you receive automatic scholarship consideration.
Also, people choose to apply through the scholar's choice application if they do not want to apply through the common app.

The best way to describe Babson: At first you'll feel like a fish out of water, but as time goes on, you somehow survive and become a lizard with tougher skin. No matter how hard you think your high school was, nothing can prepare you for the incredible and challenging academic life of a Babson freshman. Most students agree that the workload is by far larger than they initially expected. And although it takes some time to get used to the curriculum, students feel that the impeccable education is worth it.
Those who are unhappy with their education here are usually just not used to it yet. Many say that the school is too small and they get bored walking around campus and seeing the same people all the time. Voicing the fact that this college is smaller than many high schools is not uncommon here. Some students also complain that too many of their peers come from the same economic backgrounds, even though the campus is diverse in other aspects. The social scene, however, is better than expected for a business-oriented school, although it's not a party school by far. Students here are very serious about their education, and many are very competitive. School size is also directly proportional to the faculty-to-student ratio, which is where Babson excels in comparison to larger business schools. This ratio is important for the special attention that students receive from faculty. Professors are very well-educated and try their best to convey their knowledge to the young Babsonians. Although the workload can be shocking at first, it gets better with time. Most enjoy the challenges and hurdles of Babson's college experience, and believe that the education they receive is valuable to their future careers, and their future in general.
