Our niece is now a senior at Bama. Seems like she was just rushing yesterday!

You must have "rushed" a while back. The PNMs do not accept or decline invitations any longer. They "rank" all the groups on the first day and then they "rank" the ones they visit each day. The chapters "rank" the PNMs they want to invite. The computer matches the lists and the PNMs get a list of the chapters they will visit that day.

I think maybe she meant the max number of invites each PNM can receive per round?

RFM hasn't been around all that long. It's absolutely possible she went thru before it was implemented.

Possibly.

So does anyone know the max number per round?

I feel like this is a little dig at the SEC. Many SEC schools mange to put on and successfully execute some of the biggest recruitments in the country with a very high bid day rate so maybe they should be seen as the gold standard in terms of recruitment and football LOL . The "frills" for work week are fun and as an SEC mom I can tell you the actives look forward to it and the added expense isn't that much. Much less than my weekly Starbucks addiction.

That’s a big drop from 8 to 2 at the end. I guess I’m surprised that they don’t have 3 prefs.

I don't think anybody has 3 prefs now. Per NPC.

Talk about full frill recruitment...
I went through recruitment in 1970 but heard about 1960s-style full-frill recruitment. NOTHING has topped 1960s style. We're talking skits with elaborate costumes and sets, professionally-written script and songs. Food and drink for rushees (some campuses did full meals for pref), favors that the rushees took home, matching everything for actives for each round. Living rooms made into gardens with fountains and bowers of flowers. Budgets of tens of thousands of $$$.
Nobody today can even imagine it.
