I heard it's bet strenuously tiring.What are the classes like at Bucknell University. The difficulty? Workload? Generally how many classes per semester are taken? How intensive see writing/ reading classes? Lastly if someone has an input for these questions for the management school, please do so as well.

    It depends what your major is. If you are pre-Med or engineering, you will have a lot of work. If you are in humanities or poli sci, you will have no work. It's like that at all universities though. Generally people will take 4 classes and some will choose to overload with 5.

    It also depends which school you are applying into. The Engineering school has a lot of work and typically engineers have over 23 class hours a week and usually a lot of the classes they take are a lot of different STEM classes which typically assign more work than non-STEM classes. In the College of Arts and Science and in the College of Management there is a good chunk less work compared to engineers. In these two you can typically expect to have around 16-18 class hours a week, but then again it also entirely depends on your major. A chemistry major is going to have significant amount more written work than a political science major, but the political science major will likely have significantly more reading work than chemistry major. How much work you have really all depends on your major and how you choose your classes.

    I just saw the last part of your question. In the college of management you don't really have any more or less class hours than anyone in the college of arts and sciences, but again depending on what you major in within the college of management you may have 1 or 2 extra class hours than your average student might have. However the school of management usually a couple times a year will have student groups work on long term projects which can be pretty time consuming but nothing that is unmanageable or anything. Essentially you will never really feel any more swamped with work than anyone else, it really isn't that bad.

    You will find similar time requirements at any rigorous school.
