    While I don't know how my occupational opportunities will be yet, I do know that their records for having a set plan after graduation are very high (close to 100%). People in engineering know the name and reputation and have a lot to say about it. While all of this is 5-star worthy, it costs near $60,000 per year. Since they are a private school, financial aid is highly attainable, but for those who cannot get any, it is a lofty cost.

    In my experience with financial aid, Lehigh was one of the more generous private schools. However, their aid was not close to my EFC, which is somewhat disappointed me. But usually, Lehigh does a good job giving good financial aid packages. Despite not receiving what I expected, I got a generous grant from the school that covered more than half of my tuition. When it comes to financial aid appeals, Lehigh will not do a good job of giving out extra financial aid. They will most likely try to have you take out additional loans (Perkins and institutional).

    I like the feel of this school, it's small size appealed to me and the teachers and students were all very friendly.

    It's very expensive but what private college isn't? In my area, there are a ton of Lehigh alumni so the school has a great reputation.

    It costs a fortune, but the financial aid is fair. For engineers, their reputation will precede you and this will help pay off your debts.
