Bucknell University Early Decision for Fall 2023 Admission

This year, the Early Decision (ED) deadline for the Bucknell University is November 15.

List your unweighted GPA, any SAT /ACT scores, and ECs. What majors are you going into?
Ask your questions, the CC community is here to help!

I’m applying to their business school as a Finance major.

My stats are :

3.72 UW, 3.9 W

1300 Superscore

28 ACT (retaking)


Awards: AP scholar, national recognition program from psat, 2 subject national honor societies, academic honor roll

EC’s: political volunteering (canvassing, voter registration drives), treasurer in cybersecurity club, academic peer tutor, non profit tutor, 2 years of work experience

I probably don’t have too good of a shot but it’s worth a try I guess.

Going the ED route gives you a better shot. My son is there he told me he found out the the Engineering majors and Biology were the most difficult majors to gain acceptance for. My youngest so has applied ED as well with similiar stats to yours although he went test optional. Good luck to you both. I guess you will find out Wednesday.

Our son applied ED to the Arts & Sciences school, undecided major.

3.88 unweighted, 1370 superscore.

National Honor Society, Nat’l English Honor Society, Conference All-Academic for hockey.

Newspaper Sports Editor, two writing awards from Northwestern-Medill.

Varsity baseball co-captain, varsity hockey co-captain.

Misc. volunteer work with area charities, and co-hosts a Chicago Bulls podcast for Audacy 2400 Sports Network.

Fingers crossed…

How did everyone do? My son was accepted.
