Im sorry to hear that..best of luck
What are her numbers?
Im asking because my friend is an OOS too and his numbers seem to be below the requirements, yet he really wants to go to OSU...so just for the sake of comparison
Kind of surprised, advmom. Either one of two things is happening. 1) either the applicant pool took another huge jump this year, which could be the case, but while expecting some upward movement, I wouldn't expect two huge jumps in a row. OR 2) Admissions is still trying to gauge the overall quality of the applicant pool.
Just a hunch, but I think it's the latter. I'm certain that the applicant pool will improve to a degree, but when it all shakes out close to a top quarter class rank, combined with a 29 ACT should get her in.
Based on '07 numbers, your daughter's class rank is in the bottom 10% (91% graduated in top quarter), but her ACT is at about at the 67th percentile (middle 50% range 26-30). How competitive is her high school? If Ohio State views it as highly competitive, that will mitigate the class rank.
Still, at the end of the day, I think she gets in. Be patient.
Ohio State's first batch of decisions typically involve the sure bets. This almost sounds really soon for a deferment. But like sh said, the quality of the applicant pool is already projected...and it must be killer.
sh60614, nope I am not really a minority or a first gen college student. Tho my essay did talk about how I moved around the world and had many difficulties adapting to the united states. But I am in no way a minority (white, caucasian). Just shows why you can never overlook any part of the application.
