The main reason I chose this school was because the location. Its close to home but not too close. Sports and friends also played a part.

OU is located in Athens, Ohio. Its about 100 miles away from Hilliard and about 1 & 1/2 - 2 hours.

23,755 students with 74% acceptance rate. Known for partying. Greek life is very big. 60% women, 40% men. 81% return after their freshman year. Ranked as #146 in National Universities.

Health professions and related sciences, Business/marketing, Communication/journalism are what they are known for. I would be interested in majoring in criminology. I read a bunch of reviews that students wrote, and they all said they love OU and it has a ton of opportunities and has become their home.

Deadline of application for fall is March 1st. 74% of 21,000 applicants were admitted. Average GPA is 3.46. More than 75% of students are in the top 50% of their high school class. Average Critical reading SAT score is 551. Math SAT average is 550. Writing SAT average is 531. Average ACT score is a 24. Recommendation letters are considered but you don't have to have them. An interview is not considered.

There are 5 different meal plans. Flex 14 and 20, and traditional 14, 20, and 10. The flex meal plan is the most popular.

OUs Greek Life is big, also there are lots of intramural and clubs. Partying is really big. OU also has good sports.

OU is considered to be the most haunted campus in the entire country. Paul Newman, Krista Newman, and more went to OU.

I thought the school would be a lot easier to get into, but the average GPA is almost a 3.5 and ACT is a 24. Yes this is a reasonable choice for me and I do want to go here.
