No visit ruin chances?

<p>I think I have a decent shot at Cornell and I really want to go there. I have visited the campus several times because I have a cousin that goes there. However, I have never actually gone on an official tour, i.e. put my name on a list. I have a friend who got into Princeton, but was rejected from Lehigh and when he asked why, they said he never visited the campus.</p>

<p>Does this ruin my chances of getting in?</p>

<p>I went to a Bucknell information session and from what the speaker said it sounded as if it did put you in front of someone with an equal transcript. I don't think it is a major influence for admissions, but when it comes down to splitting hairs it might matter.</p>
