Episode 16: My Application Story

May 17, 2021

The college application process is highly personal — no two journeys are ever the same.

Even still, we can learn a lot from those who have traveled that road before by asking what they did right and what they wish they'd done differently.

In this episode of College Admissions Insider, we invite listeners to our first college admissions roundtable. It's a chance to hear from current college students about each step of their application process.

Listen as three Bucknell students — Emily, Gabe and Ryan — share their application stories. When did they start building a list of colleges to consider? How did they narrow that list down? What do they wish they had done differently when applying?

They have a lot to teach us, so take a listen!
