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
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.

I worked so hard in high school to getApr 10 2005Music - Performance
I worked so hard in high school to get into a good college. As a first generation college student, I didn't have the luxury of being a legacy applicant, so all I had to attract schools was me.

The more interest you show in Bucknell (and most schools), the better your chances are of getting in. Do interview with Admissions. You can only look so good on paper; your personality and enthusiasm may help you to get in. Ask for a meeting with a professor in your possible major. Stay for an overnight visit, or at least a registered day visit. Show Admissions you want to be here, and, most likely, you'll get an offer for admission.
ACT: 32 SAT: 1330 Female
