I don't believe ODU is selective at all inSep 27 2009Political Science
I don't believe ODU is selective at all in their admissions...I think they toss a coin every now and then to make it look like they're selective...but they're not.

I sneezed in Old Dominion University's general directionSep 23 2009Political Science
I sneezed in Old Dominion University's general direction.
The next day, I got a letter in the mail saying "Dear (my name), Congratulations! We have decided to offer you admission to ODU!"
If only I had applied to GMU before their deadline passed, then at least I would've been able to take a train into D.C. every once in a while...but nope!

I got my associate's degree from a community collegeSep 21 2009Education
i got my associate's degree from a community college and then just applied. it is easier and cheaper to get in with an associate's degree under your belt.
if you get in- i recommend that you keep notes and records of all your advisor meetings. you have to meet with an advisor every semester before you are allowed to sign up for classes, so make sure you always schedule your meeting with him/her before the rest of the school does... otherwise, you wont be able to sign up for your classes until after your "sign up" date and some of them could be full by then.
