Minnesota

Minnesota has struggled with retention and it is partly due to the fact that there is the perception that it isn't competitive and that it is casual, laid back, and you will 'find your home'. However, Minnesota IS selective. You have a large amount of PNMs who have not been raised to understand the recruitment process and who are not getting the wisdom from this forum and are seriously confused and hurt when their hopes are dashed. Thus a large amount drop.

Their Panhellenic should rely more on references for better introductions but it's not important to their campus culture. Perfectly wonderful PNMs fall through the cracks and out of the greek community all together. My advice is to get the recs and I say so because these PNMs would benefit from having a chat with an alumna to help familiarize them with the process and what to expect. Managing their expectations.

My humble opinion and observation.
