I have a 34 ACT and a 3.5 GPA, I know it’s a bit under average, but with mostly AP and Honors classes. I recently got deferred, but OSU is really the only school I applied to that I have much passion of attending. Is there even a good chance I could get in during regular admissions? Is there many people who get deferred who still get in? I am in-state if that changes anything. I read something about emailing a representative and expressing further interest. Is this something I should do? I don’t really want to attend a branch campus, so OSU main is really the only option I’m considering so that’s why I’m wondering if I still have a good chance of getting in, or if being deferred is basically a rejection.
Thanks in advance.
