I have a good friend who rushed at age 24 and got into a great sorority and absolutely loved it. I know that since I changed my major and have premedical classes to complete before I can graduate I still have about 3 years left of school which I know usually matters more than age. I just wasnt sure if the Panhellenic Council had any regulations on age.

There are no official age restrictions, but depending on your school, being an upperclassman may make it harder for you to get a bid.

Rumor that 40 year old, firs ttime in college, is rushing at my school this year. I'm instersted to see how this works out. I go to a small (3 panhellenic sororities) non competitive school, so this should be interesting.

If it's a non-traditional school, you may or may not get a chance. At 25 and working on pre-med, you really want to hang out with a bunch of 18-20 year olds? Seems like your focus should be on school if you want to become a neurologist.

It's your choice, but be prepared for the worst.

We had a similar situation...a 30-something year old at a small non competitive school with children at home. I think it took her one night to realize that it wasn't going to be what she wanted.

Concentrate on school. Your older then a traditional student first starting out and you have a long road of school ahead of you, I think your focus should be on school.

we should just make a line graph of "how old is too old to rush" to settle this once and for all.

actually it might be more of a matrix - age, class standing, location of school and how overthetop ridiculous the reason is for wanting to rush at said age.
