I'm interested in attending The Ohio State University for numerous reasons.

The Columbus campus is close to my hometown, so I can visit my family frequently, yet far enough away that I can grow and find myself. I feel comfortable and safe on the clean campus even with its large size. The small class ratios are an appeal because I believe strong connections with my professors will help me gain the best education possible. The City of Columbus, only a few miles down the road, provides multiple job and field experience opportunities. I respect the selective admissions process because it eliminates the less motivated, so the other students can work together efficiently and effectively.
I intend to major in the Medical field, but haven't decided an exact one to declare. The wide selection of majors makes me feel confident that I will be able to make an educated decision after exploring all of my options. I'm interested in the human body and how it functions. I know there are many careers in this area of interest, so I would like to experience some of them before I make my decision. The university has received numerous high rankings for its education and facilities, many within their medical program. This reassures me that I ,along with my fellow classmates, will be receiving cutting edge education and will be apart of major research projects that will start us on our ways to success.
