I selected Ohio State because after my two years at Columbus State I am going to transfer here. This is because Ohio State has everything I want, including the masters degree and program I want. They are a big public school with lots to offer, and they are not only academic persistent but also sport (football) persistent as well. Ohio State is close to home, where I can commute to class everyday. I also like this school because my mom went to Ohio State her junior and senior year so i want to follow in her footsteps. It is approximately 22 minutes from Hilliard Davidson to The Ohio State University and 15.3 miles.
