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.

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 :)
