I think the vast majority of PNMs are on an even keel- similar grades, similar activities in HS, similar style, similar clothes, all have recs, etc. There are far fewer "stars" and far fewer less desirables. The marjority are not average by any stretch of the imagination.

It's like Lake Woebegon where the children are all above average.

Yes!

Not sure if I should start a new thread, but it kind of goes along with the "no average PNM" theme. I received a packet with a resume that has many things that are complete fabrications. I KNOW they are not true, because I am involved in many of the activities she listed and she has NOT held the leadership positions she put on the resume.

I sent her mom (who is an acquaintance - I don't even know her phone number) an email and said I had some concerns,but she has never replied. I have her email because we are on some of the same group emails.

It makes me wonder how many resumes are more than a little puffed up. This one was truly unbelievable.

Wow Sissy! How bold/stupid of her.

Sissy, please do start a thread on that! I know schools where if lying PNMs were found out, they would be cut from recruitment in microseconds.

Bumping this. Sissy! We would love to hear how recruitment panned out for the liar!

Well, she pledged a group that is widely considered to be a top group at UT Austin. I did not write her a rec and my sister/friend wrote a "do not recommend" form for our sorority which did not extend her an invitation. This same friend called her mom about the highly inflated resume and her mom said it was none of her business and she was letting her daughter handle "all that."

She has struggled and when some girls (future PNMS) went down to visit last year they were told by her "sisters" not to hang with her on the visit because she was on her group's radar to ask to leave to because of potential drug/alcohol abuse.

Yeah for getting a "top" house and being too good for my chapter there!
