    Did you @metalmonk28‌ get the maximum scholarship or any other scholarships?
  • metalmonk28metalmonk28 Registered User Posts: 226 Junior Member

    No the maximum scholarship is only awarded to the top 25 of the entering undergrad. class. That is a full ride+ a 3,000 dollar research grant. More scholarship info can be found here: http://undergrad.osu.edu/money-matters/scholarships.html. One can realistically earn up to 18k/year in scholarship money given that they are not an "academically exceptional senior" as the small scholarships may be combined with the National Buckeye Award so long as the award amount does not succeed the total cost of attending OSU. Keep in mind that the National Buckeye Award is only applicable to out of state residents.

    Hey guys. So I applied to Ohio State in January and received a letter that I would hear back by the end of March about my decision. Well It's April 8th and still no word. I expected to be notified but wasn't, to all that heard back, were you notified? I started my OSU.edu page, and it doesn't say anything about application status. I'm not sure if I'm just not seeing where it is be or what, but I'm kind of freaking out. Where did it say that on your pages? Thanks for any responses.
