Where are all the Potential PNMs?

Does it seem that we have fewer PNMs (AKA rushees) on here than usual?

I miss 'em....and their "stupid" questions.

OK, I checked the stats and right now, there are 23 members and 123 guests perusing the boards.

I'm guessing some of our replies have frightened away PNMs.

BUT....if they're reading old threads before they ask questions...that's a GOOD thing!

YOU are CORRECT!
I'm sorry. It won't let me correct the title.

I'm betting they are lurking. Or, maybe they are out at the lake or beach enjoying their last summer before college!!

Oh, to be young again! And, not sitting behind a computer at work!!

Just found out we are working tomorrow - WTH??

The majority of the PNM posts I've seen have just been in reference to the chapter reputations at their soon-to-be college. I bet more serious questions will be coming later. I agree with srmom - they just got of high school a few months ago and they're probably still out celebrating!

I never got the point of coming to this site as a nongreek and asking questions. If you have questions shouldn't you ask somebody at your own school? I do like this site for connecting greeks though. I have learned so much about NPC recruitment from this site. (My school doesn't have formal recruitment)

I agree to some extent.
There has been a facebook group created at my school saying "My School 2013" and one of the groups is "who is rushing in the fall?"
I got so sick of reading all the questions with the wrong answer getting answered I posted ( a big no no talking to PNMs but whatever) and was like "CONTACT PANHELLENIC"

Just so you know, not everyone here is a snarky bitch. Some of us just don't appreciate the craptastic attitude some people have, so we have stopped posting when it comes to giving advice. Some of us are also tired of parents who live a greek experience vicariously through their children and want to know why their dearest darlings were cut because they are so fabulous and wonderful.

YES.

We get a little annoyed with answering the SAME questions over and over.

We also get a little sick of getting snark from PNMs when they ask ridiculous questions and don't want honest answers.

We're also totally OVER retro threads from random people who don't even post here and really just came here to get attention.

You get the idea. It gets a little annoying.
