Oh man, I'd have killed my mom. I'm glad I went to college in the 90s!

Yikes!! I hope her mom writing in doesn't get back to this poor girl, although I do really like the columnist's response that she provided. I think the daughter really needs to assess if she feels absolutely zero connection to the group and its members. But with that said I think the daughter needs to talk to someone to work through some of her issues resulting from previous bullying.

I echo what you're saying Shadokat when I was in school and things didn't go as planned I didn't get the oh poor you thing from my parents. It was more along the lines of "it just didn't work, chin up and move on."

I think this girl sounds like a lot of college freshmen.

I actually am appalled by Amy's response. Amy obviously knows nothing about Greek life or recruitment and honestly if you don't know anything about the subject, you really should keep your mouth closed. As an advice columnist, why she chose this particular letter is beyond me. She should have chosen something she knew about. If she was pressured to respond to this letter, she should have taken the time to actually research Greek life, sororities and recruitment.

Show me a girl who wasn't bullied in middle school and I'll show you the Queen B of them all!

I truly believe there's nothing scarier than a pack of ~12 year old girls.

Truth.
