I just received two invitations from clients who said they went to the same university as me. I'm wondering if Odesk is now matching up freelancers and clients according to where they studied. (Two invitations a few hours apart seems like more than a coincidence.) While I appreciate the invitations, as this is a global marketplace,and some of my clients probably never even heard of my university, I don't really see the point.

I believe your getting invitations from two clients who went to the same university as you was a mere coincidence.
I just got a confirmation from our Team that the information about university education has not been included in helping clients search for freelancers they need or identify the best match for their job post.
Other than category, feedback, hourly rate, skills, and tests filters, a variety of metrics, including customer satisfaction and professionalism can be used to find the best match. University education information is not one of them.
I hope it clears things up a bit.
