    Why did you choose Fisher? Besides its generosity, Ohio State not only has a top-notch business school but also a top-notch law school. I'm grateful that I didn't have to compromise on one or the other.

As someone who did not pursue a business degree in undergrad, I was thankful for all the preparations I could get. They truly care about their students' successes.
