This is an insane question because it can vary. Some fraternities if they are struggling will literally "blanket bid", meaning they will give a bid to anybody who stops by. Some fraternities are so selective that they have 95% of their pledge class together before school even starts from summer rush and dirty rushing.

As for being shy, work to fix that! That will be an issue with some fraternities because outgoing kids have a much higher advantage and sometimes you could pale in comparison with a talkative kid. But I find that when people act defeated, telling themselves that "I'm shy, can't do anything about it", they are going to stay the same. Force yourself to talk more, it would be scary at first obviously but after enough forcing it will probably come naturally.

Good luck!
