Chances for Lehigh??

I just applied to Lehigh ED1 and I'm really nervous. Can someone please give me an honest answer as to if I'll be accepted.

GPA: my gpa is low for lehigh. The reason for this being that i had some serious extenuating circumstances and was unable to work to my fullest extent my first two years of highschool to say the least. My entire family was a mess with divorce and my brother was suicidal, i'll end it at I couldn't exactly focus on schoolwork. My gpa was a 3.1-3.2 my first two years because of this. But, I've shown a huge upward trend, my Junior year gpa was almost a 4.0 because my brother had become stable and things were looking up in my family life. I have explained all of these circumstances in my interview at Lehigh and various essays. Overall GPA - 3.3

ACT: 29

Extra Curriculars:

-President of a capella club
-compose for 6 different instruments
-play in a band, benefit concerts for disabled
-working with autistic children for 2 years
-Varsity baseball and soccer
-Accepted to UMD honors physics course over the summer and was in the top 5 of my class of 80 and received a 4.0 for the class.
-Physics/chem/math tutor

AP's: Junior year - ap chem
Senior year - ap physics B, ap calculus AB, ap statistics, ap marco economics

SAT 2's: 690 Chem, 630 Math 1

I have interviewed at lehigh, met with a physics student, been in contact with several physics professors and the people at admissions. In all honesty I've done a lot of sucking up.

I absolutely love lehigh, it is my top choice and I have shown a lot of love. Do you think I will get in after applying Early Decision 1??
