    Cool thanks a bundle guys. Any specific ways to show interest? Like I know penn does that college options roadshow which you can attend... I might visit Olin next month [not sure though.]

    I don't really have any specific tips on how to show interest, sorry.

    Heh... it's ok xD

    By the way, I guess this question is to any Olin student (particularly the ones in my situation... i.e not fantastic GPA :/) what do you think got you in?

    I'm not sure exactly what it was that got me in. My essays were pretty good but not absolutely fantastic. My recommendations might've been fantastic but were probably in the good to pretty good range. I provided some supplementary info -- photos of art I had done, and an essay that was more on the creative side, which I thought was pretty damn good, not to boast. It was probably one or more of these factors that the admissions people really liked, but I've no idea what exactly it was that got me in.

    And yeah, I can't really think of a solid way to show interest prior to being enthusiastic in your CW interview. Just put effort into your application, and hope that it shows.

    Yeah I did. Sorry I don't really check this forum often at all. I'm a sophomore. We live in the same building. Wassup.

    Um...I'm pretty sure I addressed this in what I wrote above. You CANNOT get any form of a degree from Olin if you attend Babson and you CANNOT get any form of degree from Babson if you attend Olin. The exception is if you begin at Olin and do the 4 year (maybe 5?) joint program where you get your degree from Olin and a Masters in Technological Entrepreneurship from Babson. You do that all at once and get both degrees at the end of your 4 (or 5?) years. As a Babson student, you can take only 1 Olin course per semester.

    euroazn,

    everyone at babson gets a major in business-- so you will major in business and have the ability to "concentrate" in up to two areas.

    if you are particularly interested in finance and investment, you can concentrate in finance. these are the corresponding classes, and you must take at least 4 of them:
    FIN3515: Corporate Financial Management
    FIN4510: Corp. Finance Modeling & Decision Making Tools
    FIN3520: Security Valuation
    FIN4530: Investments
    FIN3555: Real Estate Investment
    FIN4540: Corporate Financial Strategy
    FIN3560: Financial Markets & Instruments
    FIN4560: Options & Futures
    FIN3565: Real Estate Development
    FIN4520: Babson College Fund
    FIN4570: Global Financial Management
    FIN4535: Fixed Income and Structured Products

    everyone is required to take a finance course sophomore year, and after this class you can start taking any of the above.

    you can also concentrate in finance and something else. the special thing about babson is that every one takes a basic level course in all aspects of business (finance, accounting, hr, operations, marketing, communications, IT, economics, etc.) as well as liberal arts (rhetoric, humanities, culture, politics, law, film, or whatever interests you). Entrepreneurship is by no means the only type of class...

    Right, but I was talking about Olin'ers, and what they can do at Babson.

    @nrg Yeah, probably.
    @ishamig It's ok =P. My thread title probably should have been a bit better.
