Fairly easy to get inOct 22 2006English
Fairly easy to get in. Recommendations seem to be influential in the process. I'd definately look into an overnight visit with an interview to follow the next morning. As for grades and SATs, if they are decent, don't stress. An SAT of a 1950 (1300) will probably be sufficient.
SAT: 1440 Male
I got a 1460 on my SATs and wroteJul 26 2006Biology
I got a 1460 on my SATs and wrote a pretty good essay to get in. Bucknell's SATs keep moving up, so practice as much as you can to get good scores. Make your GPA in high school as good as you can but also get AP or IB credits in as many things as you can - both help for getting in. Don't neglect extracuriculars but also don't pad your resume - instead make sure you are very active in a few strong extracuriculars.
SAT: 1460 Female
Get good grades and be very involved in schoolDec 18 2005Civil Engineering
Get good grades and be very involved in school and non-school activities. Start thinking about what you want to be in life and what educational major might take you there. Look at the organizations and departments Bucknell offers and see which you would be interested in getting involved with, so if you have an interview you can tell the interviewer why you would fit well and what valuable contributions you could make at Bucknell.
SAT: 1310 Female
Well, I had good grades, good test scores, playedNov 02 2005Other
Well, I had good grades, good test scores, played sports all through high school, was in a number of community service organizations- really involved, actually, had worked a couple jobs and was very passionate about a couple of hobbies. It's like getting into any school... you get good grades and do things that will make you seem a little special. and write a good essay- make sure you spellcheck.
SAT: 1370 Female
Get your SAT scores high enough and you won'tOct 26 2005Electrical Engineering
Get your SAT scores high enough and you won't even have to try too hard in high school to get in. I was in like two clubs, and I wasn't the most active person. Then again, they are constantly raising admissions standards... My best advice would be to find some way to become a minority.
SAT: 1420 Male
