    I copied the info below. The links may lay out the data more clearly for you. OSU is highly competitive academically....if you are a Ohio resident, you stand a FAR greater chance of being admitted. Read the info below or visit the admissions website for more info as to why....

    Three primary factors are considered in our competitive admission review process:

    Successful completion of the college preparatory curriculum while in high school. The minimum college prep requirements are listed below. Numbers in ( ) represent the recommended number of units for strong preparation.

    4 units of college prep English

    (4) 3 units of college prep math

    (3) 2 units each of college prep science, social science, and the same foreign language

    1 unit of a visual or performing art

    1 additional unit of the above courses

    Students exceeding the minimum curriculum in math, natural resources, or foreign language will be given additional consideration.

    Performance in high school as shown by class rank or grade point average.

    Performance on the ACT or SAT.
