Should I apply to The Ohio State University?

Postby jbarl1 » Thu Jan 07, 2010 9:35 pm

Thanks in advance for any advice...

I have a 3.85 and a 160. I applied to Boston U and Boston College along with Villanova and Northeastern (I haven't received any decisions yet). I have a decent list of extra curriculars, was an RA for 3 years and worked at my college over the summer and studied abroad. I have a very good personal statement and strong recommendations.

Any thoughts on whether I should throw in an application to The Ohio State University? Do I really have a chance, especially applying this late in the cycle?

yes. You should also apply to iowa, indiana, and wisconsin for that matter.

You should apply to places located where you want to spend a decent part of your career. If Ohio seems appealing, you should apply there.

Yeah I am thinking of adding Penn State to my list too.
Iowa, Indiana, and Wisconsin are all a bit too far from my central New York location to be realistic for me, but thanks for the advice!
I don't have a lot of money to put into applications so it's pretty limiting.

You have a 3.85; email schools and request a fee waiver.

Even if only one says yes (FYI: my results have been considerably better than this), you saved $ or get an extra application.


Would I just email admissions? Or am I supposed to fill out one of the forms schools have showing my financial need?
