I took theJan 23 2014Criminal
I took the ACT twice and the SAT once. If you get a 22 or higher on the ACT and you have at least a 3.2 in high school you should be fine.
ACT: 23 SAT: 1540 Male
I tried my best in all my classes andJan 10 2014Criminal
I tried my best in all my classes and got a 1440 on my SATs, I'd say to get into odu you need to have at least a 2.5. I had a 3.2 and got in a week after I applied so it isn't too hard to get in. If you have above a 3.0 you're basicLly guaranteed
SAT: 1440 Female
Balance extracurricularOct 06 2013Other
Balance extracurricular activities and school work. They look at you as a whole person, not just this number or that number. Do your extracurricular resume, have a decent GPA and decent test scores, and get great recommendations. Apply by the early deadline!
ACT: 28 Female
I had a very lowNov 28 2012Communications
I had a very low SAT score and a 3.0 in HS. I've heard they are making it harder to get in. But honestly, I think they let people in based on your ethnicity in order to be able to 'promote diversity'.
SAT: 1300 Female
