An interesting article in the NY Times

http://www.nytimes.com/2012/07/22/ed...nted=3&_r=2&hp

Okay so I am the first to admit that I am terrible at pasting URL's but there was a very interesting article in the New York times today concerning recruitment and hiring image consultants to help PNM's get ready. The Rush Biddies were mentioned.

Love how page 3 is just page 1 regurgitated.

Why would the NYTimes actually write an article about this?

I read this earlier too. Interesting article. We have talked about a lot of these people interviewed on here before. I wish that there was a comment section for some of things that were stated incorrectly. The biggest one was referring to "rush" throughout the article instead of "recruitment".

I hate it when Indiana is used as an example of recruitment difficulty and dissatisfaction. We all know it's an anomaly when it comes to the recruitment process but articles like this give the general reader the impression that it's the status quo.

What a crappy article. Totally not a balanced view. After I read it, I felt like sororities were only for thin, rich girl.
