any opinions?? ANYONE???</p>

<p>Mistermurph, have you visited Lehigh? Interviewed? If so, that will greatly improve your chances. If not, do it ASAP. Lehigh heavily weighs interest and fit, and an interview is the best way to convey that. Of course, students get admitted all the time who don't visit first, but they tend to be the strongest applicants.</p>

<p>Your scores are a little on the low side, but your course load is strong. Has your HS sent kids to Lehigh in the past? How do you stack up against them? That might be your best indicator of chances, although it certainly won't tell all.</p>

<p>yes, I have been for the info session and campus tour back in April of 2006, but have not visited for an interview. do you believe it would be well worth the trip from MA for the interview?? only one person went to lehigh from my school last year, but i am not sure what her stats were like. Lehigh is not extremely popular at my high school. I applied to Lehigh considering it one of my reach schools, but would the interview really give me that much of an edge?</p>

<p>thanks, mister</p>

<p>An interview might give you an edge, but the important thing is that you registered an official visit to campus. I wouldn't worry if you can't get back to Lehigh for an interview; however, you can always call admissions and ask if it's important. Make sure you identify yourself when you call since they might jot down your name - that shows interest. :-)</p>

<p>thanks alot mom</p>

<p>bump please</p>

<p>I believe Lehigh is a reach for you, but you have a chance. good luck.</p>
