So... what are some questions that potential new members should definitely be prepared to answer while talking to sorority members during rush?
From a different site: http://sororityeverafter.com/6-quest...y-recruitment/
And a great thread from GC on the importance of conversation: http://www.greekchat.com/gcforums/sh...t=conversation
Other than basic, get to know you questions, we really can't anticipate what they'll ask you- but that's okay because the most important part of answering these questions is doing so in a way that leads to broader conversation! For example, when someone asks you what dorm you're in, you could respond "oh I'm in (whatever) dorm and it's been so fun getting ready for recruitment with everyone. My roommate and I get along so well, last week we went to (some campus event) and had a blast!" and then the girl rushing you will have way more things to go off of than if you had just said the name of the dorm. Both you and the actives will get a better feel for each other if you manage to have a more meaningful conversation than just the basics.
ETA: I honestly think the most important part of prepping for recruitment is just doing stuff, getting involved. If a PNM comes through who was spent whatever amount of time before recruitment sitting on her butt being boring (be it high school, a few weeks into the fall semester, or the fall semester depending on when the school does recruitment) and she has nothing to talk about, the actives are going to think wow, this girl is really not the involved type, what would she bring to the chapter? In contrast, if a PNM comes through that has spent her time doing fun, interesting things that showcase her personal qualities and give her things to talk about, then it's a lot easier to picture her in the group.
