Be prepared for the following questions and prompts.
Common Application questions
Writing: Personal essay
Ohio State requires a personal statement essay in response to one of the prompts provided. If you'd like to work on your response before beginning your application, here's a list of this year's essay prompts.
Courses & Grades: Self-reported transcript
Ohio State requires applicants to report their transcript information. A Course Assistant wizard will walk you through the steps. Your counselor is aware of this requirement and can provide you with your high school transcript. You may only skip this step if you are homeschooled and can't get a high school transcript; if your transcript doesn't use grades; or if your high school doesn't use semesters, trimesters, quarters or block scheduling.
Ohio State-specific questions
General: Preferred admission plan
Select "Early Action" if you are applying for autumn semester and plan to meet our November 1 early action deadline. Otherwise, select "Rolling Admission."
General: School-specific fee waivers
If you have been given a fee waiver code for one of the programs listed, please select the program and enter your fee waiver code.
Academics: Your planned major

Academics: Opportunities beyond the undergraduate level
Ohio State offers pre-professional programs in dentistry, law, medicine, optometry, pharmacy and veterinary medicine. Identifying your pre-professional interest on the application will enable your advisors to provide you with a wide range of support to realize your goals.
Academics: Alternate campus (Ohio residents only)
If you are not admitted to the Columbus campus, you will have the option of starting your Ohio State degree at a regional campus and changing to Columbus later. If you don't select an alternate campus, you will be automatically admitted to one.
