Do you currently reside in Columbus, Ohio as a pre-med? Are you a pre-med at Ohio State University? I know what you’re thinking, you’re liking considering applying to The Ohio State University College of Medicine. Good call, but bear in mind it’s a selective school. Let’s look at some stats:

- In-state and out-of-state matriculants — 54.8% / 45.2%

Columbus is a vibrant city and a booming one. It was named No. 1 in up-and-coming tech cities by Forbes and ranks consistently high in one of the best cities in the US. Most famously, you can visit the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium which is a popular destination site for tourists and students alike. I would recommend applying, but before you do that, be sure to check out admission counseling to make sure you show your best on the application.
