From Virginia, rushing at LSU

What's up this is my first post so forgive me if I come off as a novice. I'm gonna rush at LSU next year and I figured I'd try and learn a bit about the greek system before then.

First things first though, a few of my friends were tryina tell me that I probably wouldn't be able to get into a top or middle-top house if I'm all the way from Virginia. I might not even fit in well with the gentlemen in the top houses, but I wouldn't wanna be excluded just because I wasn't able to go to summer rush parties and stuff if I do find said houses to be the best fit. I'll be rushing at formal rush at the start of the school year. I'm from northern VA (Loudoun County), I'm pretty chill, not shy around pretty women and I'm all about having a good time. Do you all think there will be any fraternities that wouldn't give me a bid simply because I'm not from Louisiana?

The simple answer is no. It will come down to if they see you as a good fit.

However, after the summer rush events, many - if not most - of the chapters begin to finalize their bid lists from men they have met and feel might be a good fit. As such, not attending might put you at a disadvantage. By the time formal rush comes around, many chapters may not feel a "need" to extend any additional bids and really only be going through the motions of formal. But also note that fraternity chapters are not limited in number of bids they may extend (i.e. no rush quota or no chapter total). So it isn't unusual that a chapter may extend bids to men they meet through formal rush. And yes, even the "top tier" chapters do so "if and when" they meet somone that is a fit.
