If you apply ED with A- grades and SATApr 22 2017Psychology
If you apply ED with A- grades and SAT scores in the 600's you will get in. Also interviews are optional but would definitely recommend that. Finally they are trying to bring more "diversity' to campus, so if you can show you are diverse in any way that should help. (I know they are specifically looking for more people not from the northeast)
This university was hella easy to get intoMar 07 2016Unknown
This university was hella easy to get into. Come on. A 40% acceptance rate is actually child's play. I actually did nothing in high school (no clubs, no sports, nothing), and all I did was show them my GPA and I got in. That's what this university is about.
SAT: 2210 Male
It wasnt my top choice, but i did aMar 01 2015Electrical Engineering
It wasnt my top choice, but i did a lot of networking to get in anyway. I went to open houses, tours, etc. I emailed the advisor for me region a few times, and that was really it. If you meet the cut, getting in shouldnt be too hard. The administration likes the "gung ho" lehigh types, so if you act like Lehigh is the new messiah, or some boyband when youre a 9 year old girl, youll get in.
SAT: 2010 Male
Be honest on the essays, rather than writing aboutMay 07 2014Computer Science
Be honest on the essays, rather than writing about what you think the university wants to hear. Visit campus, ask questions, and show interest. The acceptance rate for early decision is much higher than regular so if Lehigh is your first choice then definitely apply early. Getting in regular decision is definitely do-able (I was accepted regular decision and Lehigh was a slight reach for me), especially if you take challenging courses junior and senior year in high school and show improvement in grades. Good luck :)
