I think a lot of them are thinking "OMG, we have to cut x number of girls 1) due to RFM 2) because we have a boatload of legacies we have to think about. Jackie is a legacy to another group? Great, we can cut her and not feel guilty because surely they'll take her." I think math kind of goes out the window at that point. (by "that point" I mean 1 am in the morning after a full day of parties)

p.s. your username is cute.

I've written and deleted about a gazillion different posts, stating differing opinions. This is really one of those discussions where most of us could pick a side, EITHER side and fight for it. I think that in general it works the way it should. Chapters seem to give legacies extra attention, and appreciate them for the additional gift of family that they provide. Yes, bad stuff happens from time to time on either side of the argument, but I don't think that's too often.

But now I'm obsessed with what kind of cookie I am. I am certainly no mint milano, but I can't say I'm a nilla wafer either. I'm some kinda cookie that's got fruit and is nutty, but nothing fancy. Mix it together and drop by spoonsful onto the pan. Eat in small doses or I become too much.

We had a PNM one year named Pepper White. Middle name...

Wareagle.

Yes, her parents met at Auburn, and she came to UGA. As did her sister.

Whitney Tiger White.

You cannot make this stuff up.

Also, I would like a recipe for the severed finger cookies.

BraveMaroon, I swear to you that when she was born, I saw that name in the Auburn Alum Magazine and asked my husband why on earth anyone would name their kid Pepper WarEagle!!!!

I wonder where she pledged?

MC, you are a sick man.

Yuck! When I was little, I'd get upset when my mom would mix cookies in the cookie jar. I do NOT want Oreo dust on my Chips Ahoy!, and vice-versa. It makes me sick just thinking about it.

On a serious note, this is a place where those of us in NPC groups could learn from the NPHC. From my experience with NPHC friends and family members, legacies may have aspirations and even expectations of being in their mother or grandmother's sorority, they always learn that membership in the legacy group is not promised. That of course, doesn't prevent mothers and grandmothers from going nuts when their kid doesn't get in, but NPHC legacies, for the most part, know they have to work as hard as, and in some cases harder than, everyone else.

I think this philosophy has to be brought home a lot more, especially as demand for NPC membership grows. Because of Bright Futures and HOPE, the sororities are having to make deep cuts earlier than they had to when we were in school. We have to make sure alumnae are aware of these changes.

Okay, the undie cookies would be really cute for a Bachelorette Party.

The other cookies... scare me. I can think of a weird past PNM to go with all of them though. Desserts for the Disturbed?
