    If this post belongs elsewhere, please tell me and I'll delete this thread and repost it over there.

    Hi, I am trying to plan out my future out of college and where I will try and find a position in graphic design. During this process, i thought it would also be a good idea to check into the system for season tickets for OSU, since I am going to be very biased in choosing locations in Ohio, or near the state (louisville, etc).

    1. Approx. how long is the line (of those who are waiting to receive tickets when someone else gives them up) for OSU season tickets?

    2. Where can I go to find out more information about season tickets?

    3. Where can they be purchased (if they can)?

    4. For those who own season tickets for 2+, how often are you unable to sell your tickets (like for a Northwestern/Indiana game with less demand)?

    5. For those who sell their tickets, do you do most of your selling over ebay or in person?

    Thanks for helping me out with all of this, guys. I would try and ask around of people in columbus, but unfortunately I'm trapped in Indiana (college) and the SW corner of TSUN.

    I can answer your second question. The best place to get information on purchasing your own tickets is by calling the athletic office. If it is the same as before, which I believe it is, you have to donate a certain amount of money in order to be eligible to buy season tickets. There are various donation levels and I think they start at $1,000 annually. When I called and asked out of curiousity a couple of years ago they said I would be pretty much guaranteed the ability to buy season tickets if I donated the minimum amount. However, that was early in the 02 season.

    I would guess there are some posters on here who are/know season ticket holders who can give some more insight to Ebay and other routes.

    Your better off to go to the game and buy them from a scalper than pay $1200 to be able to get season tickets. They may be a little high for a big game but if you hang around long enough you can always get one, and for most games you can get them at a very reasonable price.

    If you join the alumni assoc. you will get two tickets to one game per year.

    If you join the Buckeye Club you will get two season tickets (Buckeye Club is an annual thing, so you need to pay the $$ each and every year). Annual cost is $1,250 first year, $1,000 each additional year.

    If you join the Presidents Club you will get two season tickets (there are several ways to pay for the buckeye club... annual, one time large gift, or a lot of life insurance if you are older... they don't want to wait for a young person in the life insurance situation). $50,000 over five years gets you in... or $2,500 per year for ever (or until they raise that amount), or $200,000 in life insurance (must be cash value, and min age is 45).

    Also, your seats will change depending on gifts to the university. Seats are assigned based on a point system. For every dollar you give you get two point for that year and one point for every dollar you have given in the past (this is why the older folks tend to have better seats... they've given over a long period of time and have more points).

    If you are doing this to make money good luck, because it isn't going to happen. Your seats will be lousy and you will not get too much $$ for them. After you factor in your cost's it just doesn't pan out... even after you factor in the ability to deduct a percent of the gift...

    Thanks a bunch everyone. I was hoping that I could get in line and eventually get season tickets and hopefully break even on my tickets if I only went to the poor games, but it doesn't sound like that is the case.

    I appreciate the help and answers.
