Bucknell admissions does not just focuss on grades andDec 26 2004Other
Bucknell admissions does not just focuss on grades and board scores on determining acceptance into the school. They also look at what kind of person they are and largely consider previous activities and potential they see in the student. I would encourage a prospective student to show Bucknell that they are interested if they truly are, making contacts with the school wont hurt. Although an interview is not required it is recommended so the admissions counselor can put a face to the name. Advice I would have for anyone trying to get into college is to not leave anything to question, if you think you should do it then do it, it wont hurt.
