I am an out-of-state student so I believe thatJun 10 2011Unknown
I am an out-of-state student so I believe that heightened my chances of attending this school. They only care about money and any way they can receive money. They have added useless additions to the campus rather than investing in necessary things. I would recommend just being out-of-state to qualify most for this school.

I was a transfer student with associates degree. I will not recommend anyone to this college.
2.8 GPA, 25 ACT, 1050 SAT, extracurricular activitiesFeb 18 2011Psychology
2.8 GPA, 25 ACT, 1050 SAT, extracurricular activities. Not hard to get into but I know people with 3.4 GPAs that got denied.
ACT: 25 SAT: 1049 Female
Extremely easy to getJan 28 2011Biology
Extremely easy to get. I see posts saying you need over a 3.0 to get in, bull I got in with a 2.5 and a 1000 on my sats. If you go to community college you are guaranteed to get in, I have friends who got with 2.0s from community college.
I got into ODU because it was the onlyDec 05 2010Computer Science
i got into ODU because it was the only college i could drive to every day from home. i could not afford to live in a dorm or apartment.

the professors are the best in the state, the best, not one of them goes out of there way to be rude, they do the opposite and go out of their way to help you. its everything not professor related that sucks. with that said:

to get into ODU this is how:

according to an agreement in the state legislator of Virginia, and the colleges that receives state funding, like ODU, any student or graduates from a community college within the state of Virginia is automatically accepted into said college or university.


no bull.
