I am hoping and praying that she gets a full card tomorrow for pref.
Great to hear! We all know it just takes one!

Ugh, they have really had a lot to deal with this year. Hoping the weather clears up and they have no more delays. And good luck to your daughter!

If anything, the girls are more rested because they get breaks. The sorority members don't get those breaks.
Not that many have dropped out or been released, so far, under 200. When you go from 8 to 3 parties, there are bound to be higher numbers in the release list. As long as the PNMs have at least 1 party to go to, things will probably work out OK.

I was just being curious. I have a friend who's daughter is going through at Bama and she only had 3 parties today. She was alittle worried. I originally thought it was Pref but realized it was still Skit parties. Thanks.

She may have had 5 yesterday so unless you know the total for the 2 days, you really can't tell. They can only attend 8 total this round, all over the 2 days.

Honestly (and I mean it in the nicest way possible) suck it up. Every chapter is a good chapter. You only meet a small percentage of members during recruitment. Even if she doesn't have the (honor) of joining that chapter and receives a bid to another, that chapter and its members will be very much involved in her school life through greek activities.

No. If she receives an invitation to her last ranked house, she didn't receive invitations to her higher ranked houses.

She must attend all pref parties, but she doesn't have to list them all on her bid card. If she gets a bid to her last ranked house on her bid card that means her higher ranked house(s) filled quota before her name came up on their bid list. She was not in their top 60/75/100/whatever choices.

If she doesn't list all of her pref parties, she is not guaranteed placement. If she does list all of her pref parties, she may be placed in her third choice.

For the life of me, I cannot understand how PNMs can decide on the basis of one week that they hate a chapter so much that they cannot accept a bid to it. Seriously... you've seen these ladies for less than 10 hours total and you've decided that you dislike them so much that you'd rather not be Greek than be in their chapter? You've met maybe 10% of the chapter and you know for sure that you can't be friends with anyone in it? On the basis of the highly artificial structure of recruitment you know that you won't have any fun with a particular chapter?

Take the bid, kid. If you still have reservations you can decide not to initiate and drop then. At a competitive school, this may be the only chance you have. You don't know enough about any of the chapters to know for sure that you don't belong in one.

It's the difference between having a job interview and having a job. When you get to the job site, the place where you had the wonderful interview might turn out to be a horrible place to work and the place with the mediocre interview might turn out to be a great place to work. You don't know until you get the job (bid) and give it a try.
