What if the secret to success...

is failure?

Although this article is wildly overwritten, there are some really interesting nuggets in there.
http://www.nytimes.com/2011/09/18/magazine/what-if-the-secret-to-success-is-failure.html?pagewanted=1&_r=1&ref=general&src=me

And I think this speaks a lot to the issues that have been discussed here about girls who have done exceedingly well through high school and then bomb out in rush and/or in college.

The survey is this:

Would the CPA (character point average) be a benefit in rush? That would be a huge bummer for some girls but would help narrow down your guest list to the girls who will 1-make grades every semester, 2-not drop out of college and 3-stay involved with the chapter through her entire academic life and beyond.

I bet the girl with the high CPA would receive her list of invites, acknowledge her cuts, and move on.

I'm picturing the rush party from hell where we ask the rushees to fill out this quick survey and then we'll sing a song! OK, maybe not. But it would be interesting to provide this survey to the rushees prior to rush and see how they succeed through rush and then through college.

I could also see working some of these questions into rush conversation.
