Has anyone tried negotiating scholarships with tOSU? and if so, how did it go?

On my application I put myname/nickname in the preferred name slot, and all of my correspondence has it just like that, slash and everything.

I just got my acceptance email today. Very excited!!! Does scholarship money come later and what kind of a scholarship should I expect, if any, as a 174 2.9 splitter?

Scholarship offers do come later but I wouldn't be expecting anything. OSU is not very splitter friendly.

Accepted to Ohio State, definitely attending. I'm an OSU undergrad, and I love Columbus. I'll be attending the April 9th visitation

Dumb question, probably already answered, etc. ... BUT ANYWAY...

For those of you who received scholarships, does accepting the scholarship offer (filling out the form online) also mean accepting admission?

No, it doesn't. It should say somewhere on the survey that accepting scholarship offer does not mean accepting admission. hth

You had a scholly already, or did you ask for even a little and they said no?

I had the max partial scholly already. I didn't know it was the max until they told me today.

Shameful Bump.... :lol:

I can't stand to see this post fall to the fourth page of topics.

Who's excited for the announcements of the Moritz scholly semi-finalists starting tomorrow?

Visited tOSU over my spring break last week. It was a very nice school, and the people there were great. However, being a (very) small-town boy, Columbus is a little to large for my liking. Won't be attending in the Fall. Good luck to everyone!

I think the poster meant that they are debating going to OSU or somewhere else and they are using their impending visit to OSU's ASW to make their final decision.
