The Ohio State University Reviews
I have had about 50% of my total cost of attendance covered by scholarships and student employment opportunities. The price is a bargain, considering the caliber of education you receive. My program is the 4th best in the country, and I have zero concerns about job placement upon graduation.
I can honestly say that OSU has made me a better person, and it can do the same for you. O-H!
