More advice:

Give the chapter an honest and fair chance.

Just like "feeling at home" with your new chapter takes time, it also TAKES EFFORT.

You likely are NOT going to become BFFs with every single girl in your chapter overnight.

You also are not going to bond with your new sorority sisters by just sitting back and expecting them to make all the effort to get to know you.

Just like other relationships, friendships within a sorority take time and effort.

You are not going to "feel at home" or "bond with anyone" by:

* sitting back and sulking about being in your 2nd or 3rd choice.

*Just going to chapter then immediately back to your room to sulk.

*Going to chapter or other events, sitting by yourself, and expecting sisters to be all over you.

*Only attending mandatory events and avoiding all of the fun stuff.

*Not attending events at all and making excuses.

If you really want feel comfortable in the chapter and feel at home, you have to:

*Get to know members
*Attend events (not just meetings, fun stuff too)
*Hang out
*Have fun
*Get involved

If you are just so upset about getting a bid there that you aren't willing to do any of those things, then maybe you should re-think your decision.
