Luckily for my D, with only 5 still in the running she didn't have to make any tough choices on who to keep on her list. She didn't find that comment as funny as I did.
Thanks for that info, BBH! Patience, humor and wine will all be needed this week

This is a good slide show regarding RFM.

Couldn't agree more. And, if BBH's daughter is anything like her wise mother, she will do just fine as the process progresses! Seems like she has a great attitude and a good head on her shoulders!

That one's great! I wish that NPC could enforce that line about not pressuring PNMs to list all chapters on their MRABA.

Thanks to all the moms who are sharing their daughters' stories. I empathize with your anxiety and I'm glad you found the GC forum!

Best wishes to all of your daughters! It's been 5 years since my daughter went through a competitive winter recruitment at a different school, but I remember the anxiety all too well!

I should clarify, I'm actually the dad. Don't want to mislead anyone. Both my wife and I were Greek in college but much smaller school and rush was a lot different back then. But I do agree, her mother is very wise.

I find this whole process just very interesting and we are pretty much staying out of it other than responding when she asks. I found this sight while trying to understand how the process works and it has a lot of great information.

I hope all the women are getting caught up on their rest, getting settled in for this semesters classes and wish everyone out there the best of luck the next round.

I thankfully went back to work today after a 3 week vacation. I now have other things to occupy my time. I talked to my D last night and she's in great spirits. She said no matter what she's thankful for the new friends she's met through rush. PNMs that were in her building and groups that she may not have met if she hadn't rushed. I will definitely be stocking up on wine for the weekend also! Hopefully the new schedule of classes keeps them from stressing so much.

Hoping the forecasters are wrong on the weather this weekend! If not how will it impact rush if at all? 1-3” snow/ice during the day Friday and 8-12” Friday night.

Oh no! 😬 despite the bitter cold last weekend, I know they were told they had to walk everywhere. While there was a rush bus, my daughter said it was full most of the time.

I heard the same from my daughter she walked A LOT. It is nice that they try to group houses and times for them to visit.
