This happened to me during the *weird semi-formal* informal recruitment I did during the spring of my sophomore year. Not the "worst" house, but a "semi-lower tiered" one was my favorite and when I didn't get it back and there were girls complaining about getting it back it made me want to cry.

But all in all, after a lot of set-backs, I ended up where I fit in best and where I am meant to be and I love my sisters and my experience with my chapter and am looking forward to my future with them. I can't imagine myself anywhere else.

This makes me understand part of why Peggy has membership issues.

I've seen friends come through and been uncomfy or not feeling it with my chapter...and known I was going to have to convey that to my sisters somehow...but there are FAR better and more discreet ways to do it.

I'm sure it's different in larger chapters/rushes than it is in smaller ones and a lot of it is just taking at their word individual opinions. It would have been one thing if she would have said to you before rush ever started "Don't feel bad if you don't feel comfortable with my chapter, the important thing is for you to find the right group for you" - that's being Panhellenic. And you more than likely could have found a way to convey that to her that let both of you off the hook. But unless this girl is your best, best, best BEST friend in the entire universe, IMO what she did was beyond the pale.

Loving the theme! I actually had a Mad Men themed party for my birthday and I dressed up as Joan.

I'm hoping it isn't because she joined Peggy and she's offended that I dissed the girl who is now her BFF.

Not offended! Just a little bogged down with work. Tomorrow, I'll talk Pref!

Ah sorry!

Well after the Slideshow days were over, we had to go to a mandatory meeting.

I think a lot of girls must have dropped out of recruitment in 2009, because a girl from Panhellenic was explaining how we would rank our parties after Pref the next day.

Basically we were told
-We would go to up to 2 parties for Pref
-If we only went to one house, we would be guaranteed a bid from that house
-If we went to two houses, we would have to rank them 1 and 2. She said we COULD just list one house if we only really liked one house, BUT she strongly advised against it because "you'll have a better chance of getting your first choice" if you are inputted in the computer twice or something like that

Anyhow!

We all get up at SIX in the morning...rush is the ONLY reason I'd get up that early in college

My best friend gets Jane Sterling and Trudy Campbell!

Her roommate gets Trudy Campbell!

My roommate gets Dr. Faye Miller and Trudy Campbell!

I get Joan Holloway and Peggy Olson!

My heart leapt when I saw Joan's name on my slip of paper! I was admittedly surprised that I got dropped both from Trudy Campbell (not shocked actually), and that I was asked back to Peggy Olson.

In ANY case, I was looking forward to getting ready for Pref and going to see what in the world a preference ceremony was actually like!

Unfortunately I have work soon but I wanted to at least let you know what houses I got!!!
