    My number one tip if to work hard from your first day of high school to your last. Getting good grades is extremely important, while also becoming very involved will help you succeed in getting into Ohio State. The application process is very competitive, so starting early will be very beneficial for you. When you are a senior, I highly recommend applying as early as you can.

    Know that when you start your major's courses, the classes will be smaller and more personable. Gen ed classes are the ones in auditoriums. Make friends with at least one person in each class, it makes the school feel friendlier. It's a big campus. Save your legs. Look at the map as you schedule your classes, make them close together.

    Get involved. There are so many opportunities on campus that it would be strange if you couldn't find something to be involved in. Talk to your professors, or at least your TAs. They are paid to help you in any way that they can, so take advantage of office hours. Take your studying seriously, don't procrastinate, and be focused when working. It is possible to work hard and play hard. For example, last semester I took 17 credit hours worth of mostly science classes, worked 15 hours a week at my job, and still had time to go out and have fun just about every weekend. Balance yourself, and you will find that attending OSU is an amazing experience.
