OSU is super easy to get intoNov 19 2007Accounting
OSU is super easy to get into. If you can't get into OSU you probably shouldn't be going to college. I believe you need a 2.0 GPA and a decent ACT score.
ACT: 31 Female
Fill out the FAFSA, complete the application before theJul 26 2007Mechanical Engineering
fill out the FAFSA, complete the application before the honors /early deadline, get good grades, do well on SAT or ACT. OSU is becoming tougher and tougher to get into every year. People with 3.7 high school GPAs are not getting in, so do something extracurricular to set yourself apart from the average student whether its test scores, essay answers on the application, or activities and accomplishments resume
OSU is increasingly competitive to get intoJun 25 2007Business - Management and Administration
OSU is increasingly competitive to get into. I think it would
be a good school for graduate work. Undergrads don't get a
lot of attention.
In the last couple years they have greatly raisedDec 10 2006PreMed and Medical
In the last couple years they have greatly raised their standards due to higher application volume and the goal of the school to gain higher status. Still initial undergrad is not too tough to get in, maintain a descent 3.0-3.5 and your good, also descent SAT scores would help as well.

Spend some meaningful time on the essay portion, theOct 05 2006Business - Management and Administration
Spend some meaningful time on the essay portion, the admissions office takes a close look at that. Also, attach a letter or two if you are extremely interested in attending, the office likes demonstrated interest.

3.32, 1190 got me in here, and the standards are rising at a breakthrough pace. Apply early and attend one of the best universities in the nation.
