It's true: I have a friend who transferred schools three times until she got into Gamma Phi Beta.

true, true.

It was funny because her mom was a KD and her sister a Chi O. She turned down a bid from one of the houses at one school and dropped out at a second school after Gamma Phi had dropped her, even though she had both Chi O and KD left.

She knew what she wanted though...

Just found out that one of the girls from our local high school who I wrote a rec for pledged Gamma Phi Beta - YAY!! - as did another girl I did a rec for from Evans HS (she'd already made the cheerleading squad at UGA before she even started her freshman year at UGA?) Yay!!

Smile Another result from UGA

An advisor from our UGA chapter just told me Tri Delta took quota of 58 plus 4 for a total of 62. She was very excited about the new members.

That is some serious devotion! Wow! When did this happen if you don't mind my asking? Sorry, I've just never heard of someone transferring schools *multiple times* for the sole intention of joining a particular sorority. Not that Gamma Phi isn't worth it

like two years ago! She started out at an out-of-state school and turned down the bid, so she was "stuck" there a year. Went to an in-state school and was dropped by Gamma Phi after second rounds. Dropped out of rush, finished her semester there and transferred to another in-state school where Gamma Phi was doing COB in the spring.

I was shocked when she told me she was transferring again, but she really wanted to be a Gamma Phi and was smart enough to know how rare AI is.

I have heard that the entire list of UGA results is posted somewhere - who pledged where from what town? Anyone know?

I think the picture of the signs hanging off the TriDelt house with the pledges names listed are the closest we're going to get to a bid list.
