The entrepreneurial spirit is contagious -- the general feeling is not "can we do this" but how quickly can we do this. The school is all about execution -- giving Freshmen -- Freshmen! -- a budget...
I can see where this could be a tough spot for someone who doesn't love starting something and seeing it finish -- and turn a profit.
The immersion teaching style: first thing you do on campus is brainstorm ideas for the business you will run in the spring semester.
The bubble: it's not easy to get to public transportation and with such a small school it's hard to socialize with people from other schools (except Olin and Wellesley of course)
The best thing about Babson is you are immediately immersed into the nuts and bolts of running a successful business. If you're into straight theory classes instead of actually doing the fun work...
This is like a selective art school, except for business. You gotta LOVE business and entrepreneurship from the get-go to succeed here, tough to transfer to another major.
Every student at this school needs A smartphone, you're lost without a constant email connection
Another awesome thing is entrepreneurial spirit and can-do attictude. Lots of international diversity as well.
Every student at this school needs a humbling experience of some sort.
I wish I knew actually it was exactly as I anticipated.
