Can someone please confirm what I heard in regards to Ohio Stae's new admission policy: they are giving zero preference to Ohio residents??? Oh, man...if this is true, then I feel as if I have sunk!!! I want to attend OSU sooo bad, but now, it seems as if they are putting more barriers on their doors the closer I get to applying!!!

I haven't heard this and would be surprised if it were true. Ohio State is a public university funded by state money. Seems to me they would be obligated to take mostly in staters. Last time I looked their in state % was 80.

I'm an out-of-stater, but I i received their secondary application. About 80% of their class is in-state though.

perhaps by "open enrollment" they mean that anybody can take classes at OSU, but you still have to apply to a specific program and Ohio peeps would get preference as usual. I'd think this would apply more for other types of classes than med school classes.
