As a KU alum, and former Rho Chi, I can tell you that recruitment at KU is very competitive, especially for a Midwestern school. The chances of you getting one specific house you want is always very slim, because only 40 out of about 800 PNMs (or about 1 out of every 18 PNMs) will get into that house -- and unless you are a triple or double legacy to that specific chapter, there are no guarantees.

My best advice is to make sure you get a recommendation for EVERY house. Make sure to dress nicely & trendy but don't push the envelope too much. Learn how to do your makeup so it looks good through an 8-hour day of 90 degree temps. Polish your conversation skills so you're prepared to talk to people with a variety of personalities. When you're going through recruitment, don't talk bad about any house -- that stuff gets back to people, and it can hurt you in ways you can't even imagine.

All the chapters at KU are strong, and you will have a good time and similar experiences no matter what your letters are.
