1. After applying online, I recommend getting any and all college/university transcripts sent to OSU as soon as possible. Without the transcripts, nothing moves forward.
2. Once I requested transcripts from previous universities, the transcription services were quick to notify me when they sent them off (within a day). But it took a few weeks for OSU’s application portal to show receipt of transcripts. One, mailed from the university rather than sent electronically due to technical reasons, didn’t appear until, about a month later, I sent an email to OSU’s Admission Office to ask about it. They remedied the situation quickly. In retrospect, I wish I’d sent off that email sooner.
In my quest to learn Python, I hit upon an early snag of not being able to access it in the command window / Powershell of my Windows 10 system.
I had downloaded Python 3.9.0 from python.org; during the installation process I made sure the option to establish a “PATH” was checked. Per various sources in my internet search, this should have been enough to avoid this particular issue.
Nonetheless, post-installation, when I entered “python” after the prompt in the command window, I was informed that “python” was not recognized.
