OSU was very easy to get in to andJul 19 2019Biology
OSU was very easy to get in to and to be honest, it was a last minute decision for me to apply and I filled out the application at 1 am and submitted it before 3 am (I grew up on the east coast). That being said, I had above average test scores, GPA, and played several varsity sports, in addition to various clubs and groups. I would say just try to be well-rounded and you should get in. I've met one or two people who are dumb as a stick, so you should get in fine.

I applied as I would to any other publicJan 13 2017Aerospace Engineering
I applied as I would to any other public university but public universities are not difficult to get into as, at least OSU, just sees you as easy money.

Many students are not told about pro-schools upon application so they are forced to leave after not passing the second application after their freshman year and have already paid large amounts of tuition.

I do not recommend this school as they will try to take advantage of you at every chance they get. The only good thing you learn st OSU is how to stand up for yourself against a corporate-like entity.

Take courses in high school that will challenge your mind and help you develop critical thinking skills. You want to develop as a person and do your best, the grades and rewards will ultimately follow.
I transferred in with a suitable GPA from theAug 25 2013Business - Management and Administration
I transferred in with a suitable GPA from the community college level.

Don't go to OSU to play around. It is a great school but do not go there unprepared.
You have to plan to be three steps ahead of your homework.
If you are doing entrance SAT's and tests like that, study like it is a job.
