    My son was offered a spot off the waitlist last week for the College of Managment at Bucknell. They gave him a day to decide and he decided to accept, in the end

    Congrats Gar1000. It is hard to get into the College of Management. At least that is what I gave heard.

    Anyone else hear any details at all about Bucknell's Wait list for class of 2021? The portal Letter states they will know numbers by June 1 but I have no idea how or if they give out this information and not sure if hearing nothing by now means the answer is no or they are stll working through! Anyone else hear any details at all??? How do they typically disseminate the info also? By the admit portal?

    @Fuzzfactor5000 I sent an email at the beginning of May and the response was that, "In general, if you are accepted you will be notified by June 1st." So sadly, I don't think we've been taken off - though I'm not really sure what 'in general' means....

    Yeah, it kinda says that in the form letter. I guess they leave u hanging until 8/1 just in case something crazy happens. Well good luck to you!

    @GAR1000 After your son was waitlisted, did he send any email to bucknell? Bucknell told us that "Contacting us by phone, by email or in person will not alter our original decision about your application, nor will
    it influence how we decide to fill any potential vacancies that arise."

    He had never seen the school so we did subsequently visit and take a tour. He had called Admissions ahead of time and they said he could come, though they didn't go out of their way for him. He did speak with a track coach for a bit. Not sure if that helps. The visit was really more about his checking out the school to see if he liked it/wanted to stay on the waitlist than it was about selling himself to them.
    He found out he got off the wait list in a phone call. He then had 24 hours to decide. I think his portal changed only after he decided to accept. I hope this information is helpful.
