The truth is, we can't tell you your chances of being admitted. While grades, test scores and recommendations are extremely important, we look for more in our applicants.

We look for students who are daring, who will contribute to the world in thoughtful, bold and compassionate ways.

So if you’re a learner and a leader, we hope you will consider Bucknell.
