<p>2 (I hope) awesome recs
counselor rec I assume will be good, I know him decently well.</p>

<p>essay is deep, about how my experiences in Ecuador connect to my daily life</p>


<p>I would say you have the goods for any top college.</p>

<p>Haha, you go to my son's school! Eyy Prep! You will get into Lehigh and most likely into the Eckardt Scholars program as my son did. If you do end up chosing Lehigh or have any questions once my son starts in September, send me a PM.</p>

<p>Make sure you visit the campus and talk alot about that on your app. Also, make sure you have a creative and unusual essay!</p>

<p>Good luck with your decision.</p>

<p>JMO, but I wouldn't say it's a lock. He may be looked at as using Lehigh as a safety, therefore, they may waitlist him to gauge his true interest. This is just my opinion. He would be a great candidate for Lehigh.</p>

<p>Good point, nothing is a lock in the admissions process as my son found out!</p>
