Freshmen Transfer

What do they look at when you are a freshmen-transfer in sororities exactly, because I didn't do that relatively well in high school but in college my gpa is a lot better? Do they care so much about what happened in high school as far as grades go since the grades in college are a lot better? Thanks

Who's "they"? No one here can answer your question. No one here can speak as authority on selection criteria.

If you didn't do great in high school, focus on your college studies because you won't be considered for any sorority with mediocre grades, especially in the SEC.

I was referring to sororities in general. Do sororities in general look more at your high school grades, or college grades if you already have taken college courses but are not yet considered a sophomore. Thanks for the help

If you are asking what GPA sororities will look at after you transfer, they will likely be paying attention to your college GPA. But to get a definite answer, you need to call your new school's Greek life office. Have a list of questions like these ready.

You should be able to find the minimum GPA requirements for your campus on their greek life website. That number is not flexible, so if you're "just a little below that" you're not ready to go through recruitment.

Wait a minute. You are a Freshman but your GPA in college is ALREADY better. You have been there maybe 2 months and already know that?

I keep every graded homework/paper/test recorded for every class (and keep an attendance record for myself) so I know at any time what my grade in every class is. Even if she just knows she's gotten all A/Bs on her latest projects and knows she'll keep it up, it isn't unreasonable to say her GPA will be better.

As far as I know, college doesn't mix your college GPA with your high school GPA.

Thank you for helping me out along with everyone else
well i know what i need to get and expect nothing less of myself and as far as the grades that I have received so far, I know my college GPA is, has to be, and will be better then my high school GPA. But I was just curious if they paid more attention to your college grades even if there isnt many and your still considered a freshmen compared to your high school grades. Alumiyum youve been a lot of help answering I'll my questions and I will do that, I'm just wonderfull what everyone else thinks also. Thanks again!

You're welcome, and good luck! Just work hard on your academic career no matter what...that's why you're going to college in the first place. Make sure to ask your Greek life office before recruitment if you still have questions.

SECgirl, From the schools that i have been involved with during recruitment, they are most concerned with your most recent GPA-so, if you are a brand new, never attended a college class in your life freshman, then they will use that GPA. If you have a college GPA, even if it is just for one semester, if it is the most recent, that is what the Greek life office will be using.
