Question how personal is "too personal?"

hey everyone! i'm rushing this semester as a junior, which i'm kinda nervous about.

i was looking at panhellenic stuff for my university, and they said that for round one, we would be asked why we chose my university, our major, our hometown, what we did in high school, and why we chose to rush. i chose to rush because i really didn't have a solid group of friends when i was in high school, and the people that i thought were my people kinda splintered off during the year that i was abroad. i really, really want a sisterhood and to find my people.

is this too personal of a story to tell during round one? should that wait until later?

thanks!

It should be discarded totally. IF you are asked (and not everyone will ask you that) - you want to meet new friends and join a sisterhood - or something generic along those lines. Quit overthinking this!

thanks! i overthink SO much and i hate it. my friend, an ADPI at loyola chicago, recommended that i say something about wanting a place to be comfortable in and a sisterhood.

There is no reason - or need- to get that detailed and personal. Not in the first round nor in later rounds. Keep it breezy - you chose to rush because you are excited about making a close group of girlfriends / sisters.

No. You are a junior, so I assume you spent the last two years at this college? Why haven't you found "your" people in the two years you have been there? Alarm bells are ringing. Formulate a different answer and try it out on us.
