I'm an first generation African-American Male.
I haven't worked to my potential in school, yielding my 3.0 gpa. I've taken the SAT I's once, 610-CR 580-M 600-Writing. I got a 600 on the US history SATII, and I've taken 6 AP Courses. ON top of that alot of honors courses, giving me a tough schedule. My school is ranked number 1 by Newsweek as the best public school in Connecticut(does that mean much?).What are my chances at Lehigh with great reccs/essays?
