"I Want to Be in a Sorority"

It's a book, a Web site, and a Facebook page.
What's your opinion?

I've found FB pages from various universities using this title, but no generic FB page or web site. Can you give URLs?

APOLOGIES!
It's "I Can't Wait to Join a Sorority."

They offer a free booklet, and a book that's a "$49+ value for just $19."

So many of their "Secrets" are A. Common sense (ask open-ended questions, don't share very personal information) or B. information found here or even on Goggle (difference between Formal, Informal, COB).

I'll spend some time on this site as I wait for the bug guy.

ETA: I downloaded their free booklet on the 10 reasons to join a sorority. Some gems: it will look good on your resume, it increases the chances of meeting hot fraternity men, and Greek life is something that you "CANNOT miss out on!"

Also on their FB page: "Joining a sorority can be a life-changing experience. Learn more about recruitment & greek life here & tell the sorority women at your school that you too can't wait to join!" Yes, because going through recruitment and participating in conversations isn't enough to show that you're interested. Instead, enthusiastically announce it at every recruitment party.

Lastly, I found (in a 3-second search) the actual download page for the e-book. Major pet peeve: A lot of spelling words with their Greek-letter counterparts.

Some of the tips or "secrets" that made me go :0
:

- being in a sorority "likely" make your professional career better.
- "Rush is like dating" (they use the word Rush a million times, versus recruitment, despite the fact that people pointed it out on their FB page).
- some sororities have "summer parties" that "aren't advertised", and suggest PNMs to ask around to get put on the invitation list.
- do your homework to find out who the "movers and shakers" in each sorority are.
- having a rec will likely get you invited to round two.
- you should whiten your teeth with www.----.com
- if you have lumps and bumps, buy shapewear from www.---.com (the site is repeated a few times; I''d bet that they are owned by one of the people who created the site)

Oh god....

Right on the front wall page is a girl who'll be attending my school this fall. Don't they have anyone better to ask their questions too?

Overall its just a big ploy to get you to buy all the stuff they advertise.
