Bucknell is interested in bright, well-prepared students who will challenge the faculty and each other. In selecting students, we look at academic achievement in high school, evidence of significant talent or ability, and strong personal qualities of character, leadership, and personality.

In evaluating your application, we focus on the content of a high school experience, particularly your grades and recommendations. We are impressed by students who make a genuine contribution to the community through service and sensitivity to others.
