Hi! Just wanted to start a chain for the ED2 applicants!
Hey! I’m an international student and I applied ED 2 to Bucknell.
Awesome school ! What factors led you to apply ED ?
Hey! I applied to Bucknell University’s Freeman College of Management for a major in Markets, Innovation and Design. It’s one of the best business schools in the world with a liberal arts approach. As an international student, the community, diversity and academic reputation matter to me when deciding a college. Bucknell is very welcoming, and I experienced that during the virtual tours and the Q/A sessions with the admissions team. The reviews from current students and alumni made it easier for me to decide if I wanted to do ED or not. Bucknell feels like the perfect place for me and the opportunities there are abundant. I just hope that my credentials qualify me for Bucknell, but considering that the university is need-aware, I may not get in.
Completely agree. Some unique aspects of the school - particularly the curriculum, made it stand out. Very similar thoughts and situation here although not international. It’s out of our hands now so just have to wait and see !
That’s great to know. I hope that both of us get in. By the way, Bucknell just announced that they have had a rise in number of applicants by 12.3% in 2021. This year has been highly competitive, even more so for international students with weak financial background like me. All we can do for now is keep our fingers crossed and hope for the best.
Any word on when decisions may be released ? Has to be soon !
Well, the website says mid-February. They haven’t mentioned anything on social media yet. The trend from the past few years show that the decisions were out on February 18th, so it’s likely to come out that day.
Hopefully it’s truly more “mid” which would be the 14th
Bucknell University, will you be our Valentine?

Hoping this week !
I assume this Friday, or next Monday.
