Calm down and go find the statistics in a college book or online- it's not difficult. Try Princeton Review's website.

Sebastian your name indicated you are from a different country other then the United States. I know I might be wrong on this one. Achieving success in today's business world is not the easiest thing to do let alone in any industry.
Having achieved a level of success I can tell you that you should be hardworking, motivated, set realistic goals and try to achieve as much as you can.
For further information on getting into Babson College or any other school I suggest looking at a college handbook. You could scan through the Pricenton Reveiew's overview of schools online at Princetonreview.com however, I find some of their reviews to be grossly biased and misleading in some ways.
Perhaps ask your guidance counselor if you could see the folder where all the college decisions are listed. On that list would be what you are looking for it would show the rank in class (if there is rank at your school), gpa, SAT score and decision of the applicant.
I'm guessing you should have somewhere above a 1250 SAT to be sure of admission and a 3.5 gpa. At my nephew's school he told me a few kids got into Babson being ranked in the top 30% of their class and having SAT scores of 1150-1300. This information was given to him from that folder I mentioned earlier where all the admission decisions are kept. Compliments on the great choice of school
So roughly that is what you should aim for. As always write amazing essays, get great recommendations and all the other required criteria that will be evaluated in depth at smaller schools such as Babson.

Over 50% of our new employees come from top business schools. The likes of which are Wharton, NYU Stern, MIT, Michigan, Babson, Maryland, Wake Forest, Indiana and a handful more.
Collegewannabe I noticed you had an interest in business as well. What field within business are you planning on studying?
I can tell you directly just because you didn't go to one of our main recruiting schools there is no reason to think you won't get hired. In fact just the other week we had a similar situation.
From my experience I can tell you that the University of Richmond in Virginia gave me a great education. Although it isn't considered a superb business school it was good enough to give me that base ground that I needed. I worked hard and got into a decent Master's program. I went to Boston University for my Masters. That too isn't considered a super school but I worked very hard and did very well in graduate school. My doors opened up just as they would have for most people and I was fortunate to capitalize on what I had.
With accounting I would say the posters on the other thread were correct. We have also hired many more accounting majors in recent years. Although the business is real estate we need people to work with the numbers and help organize. That is why in recent times we have been looking towards accounting majors.
Well please post if you have anymore questions regarding the college admissions process in general as my nephew is currently in the same situation and I found this website out by trying to help him. I'm glad I've found a good group of intelligent people who want to make an impact in tomorrow's world. I hope to share what I know with people like you so you can achieve your goals.

Annieivy, hopefully I have been of some help to you telling you a bit about myself and a real life example of doing business in today's world. In my situation the college I went to wasn't the greatest but I worked very hard in college and took advantage of my opportunities. Collegewannabe (I like the name) I hop eI have been of assistance to you as well as all the other people. Please post if you have any more questions. I'll try my best to answer them. Between traveling and some busy days at work I'll try to get around to answering any questions you may have about college or life and the business world in general.
