That's just how things work.

Also, it doesn't matter if Ally ABC who lives on your dorm floor/is in your class/you met at a fraternity house says "you'd soooo be perfect for us" and "you're sooo in."

Chances are good that alot of girls have a friend in ABC who said the SAME thing.



I can't agree with this anymore!!!

Winter recruitment horror story, featuring both arrogant PNMs and a package deal:

During the 2013 fall semester, a group of freshman declared themselves via Facebook to be the hottest freshmen on campus. (They weren't.) They named themselves the "Hot 8" lso declared that they were going to join a sorority together during Winter Recruitment and that it would then become the hottest sorority on campus.

Recruitment did not go well for them. I don't think it was a total failure for all of them, but it certainly wasn't what they wanted it to be.

This is gross. When did modesty go out the window? What woman seriously calls herself the hottest freshman on campus? What school was this? Did they get bids to any sorority?

Cuts were pretty heavy for them when the invitational rounds started. That's about all I can say.

It was the "Hot 12" and this was my campus. I'll "ditto" everything KDCat said.

Thank you!

I facepalmed so hard when I heard about it.

Ditto'ed (sp?) again. For the most part, it seems like what started as a private joke became public one night due to an intoxicated "member" and got out of hand. Most of them have yet to live it down.

To my knowledge though, most (?) of them received bids, and many of them joined the same chapter.

It's also so funny to have someone else involved in my campus on this site.....it's interesting to get another perspective on things.

WUSTL recruitment is pretty laid back, though, and it was STILL ugly and uncomfortable.

Oh I would never think of denying that. There are always at least a few girls going through recruitment that everyone knows about, but this year it was a total campus noteriety rather than just gossip. This is what happens when you have winter recruitment people.........I wish PNMs understood that no matter what they believe, stupid things you do first semester can and maybe will come back to bite you in the butt. I've seen it happen now with both friends when I went through recruitment and on the other side and it's not pretty.

Maybe they were watching too much Sydney White :rolleyes:

I'm confused. Is "anymore" no longer a word?

This is a very good lesson for winter recruitment.
