    Make sure you tour campus, it is large but it isn't impossible. Make friends on campus- in your dorm, in your classes, and in your activities.

    Make sure you are physically fit enough to walk across campus for your classes. Most importantly, when you are applying to Ohio State, make sure that you apply before November 1st. This is the deadline for early action. This is also the deadline for merit scholarships. If you win, you can get a full ride to attend OSU. Take your time on your essay and answer questions truthfully. Also, there are several departmental and major-specific scholarships available. Talk to the office of admissions or financial aid and be on top of everything. Housing is really expensive at OSU (around $11,000) so if you can live in an apartment or with someone else, do that.
