ApplyYourself vs Buckeyelink

If you have created an application account for the MAcc program and have started working on your application, you have been using a system called ApplyYourself (“AY“). This screen shot should look familiar when you log in:

Once you submit your application to the MAcc program, you will continue to visit AY to review your application checklist – this will tell you whether we have received your transcripts, your test scores, your letters of recommendation or any other application materials that were not submitted with your online application form.

Soon after submitting your application, you will receive an email from The Ohio State University that provides your OSU ID and OSU ID password. This information will be used to log into the Buckeyelink to check your application status as it pertains to a DECISION on your completed application. This site will be updated to indicate whether your application is in review, been approved for admission, been denied, or whether a decision has been deferred until a later date (wait listed):

For Fisher MAcc applicants, this application status button on Buckeyelink is not where you go to make sure we have received your application materials. This is where you go to check on the status of your completed application.

To summarize:

Check AY to check the status of your application that has been submitted but not yet complete.

  • In other words, until your application is complete, check AY.

Check Buckeyelink to check the status of your application that has been submitted and is complete.

  • In other words, after your application is complete, check Buckeyelink.


Good luck!

    I don’t know if others are facing this issue. My application status in AY is always submitted. I do not see the status of materials received. I may doing something wrong I guess.

    Please contact the MACC application processing office at macc-app @ if you have any questions regarding your app.
