And there might be 200 other girls that her "first choice" and the "4 she really likes" like better than her and will bid before her.

Narrowing her choices before rush even begins is a sure recipe for disappointment. If you want to be a good mom, tell her to go into recruitment with a completely open mind.

Just a caution... one of my high school best friends went into recruitment at UGA with a "favorite" house where she had spent several weekends while in high school. She was beyond devastated when that house cut her after round two of recruitment because she thought it was a perfect fit. She dropped out of recruitment and never joined a sorority. She was still pained by the experience years later when that very same house she had visited and loved and been cut by pledged her younger sister, who had never met any members of the house prior to recruitment.

Make sure your daughter knows that AOII is amazing, but so are the other 16! No matter which one she joins, she will have a blast... as long as she gives them all a chance.

it is honorable for your daughter to feel she should attend the transfer of power of her h.s. socority, but it would behoove your daughter to attend the atlanta alum panhellenic event instead-not only will she meet alums. representing all the sororoties at uga, but she will hear how recruitment at uga is run and what she can expect.
